The US Mint started issuing the American Eagle Silver Bullions coins in 1986 and they have appeared annually since then.

Designed as investment tools with their weight and purity guaranteed by the United States Government, demand for the silver coins was extremely high in the previous two years. In 2008, 19,583,500 of the coins were sold, with an astonishing 28,766,500 sold in 2009. Prior to these two years, it was uncommon for sales to reach above 10 million annually.

The United States Mint does not sell bullion eagles directly to the public, but instead to a small group of authorized purchasers who in turn resell them to precious metal providers, investors, dealers and collectors. These coins do not have a mintmark, unlike their numismatic counterparts.

2010 Silver Eagles were released on January 19, 2010. Due to the high demand for the coins, they are distributed by the Mint in an allocated, or rationed process.

Obverse design: Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar was used as the original design for the silver bullion coin. On it we see Lady Liberty walking while holding an olive branch. Also shown are the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the year.

Reverse design: US Mint Engraver John Mercanti designed the original for the reverse which shows a Heraldic Eagle and shield. In the eagles beak is a scroll containing the words "E PLURIBUS UNIM." Surrounding the eagle are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR."
