The United States Mint has been America’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coins since the U.S. first began minting coins in 1792. In addition to minting the circulating pocket change that fuels everyday transactions, the U.S. Mint has created many series of beautiful numismatic silver coins.

Popular series of U.S. Coins include American Silver Eagles (considered by many to be one of the most beautiful silver coins ever minted), America The Beautiful Coins (5 oz. of .999 fine silver), Modern Silver Commemoratives (honoring historic U.S. anniversaries and events), Silver Morgan Dollars (a classic U.S. Coin), and Silver Peace Dollars (minted to honor the end of World War I).

Today’s American silver coins are currently struck at four U.S. Branch mints, each identified by their individual mint marks: Philadelphia (P), Denver (D), San Francisco (S), and West Point (W). Issues from the Philadelphia Mint are not always struck with the (P) mint mark. Older coins may also feature “CC” or “O” mint marks – identifying them as products from the Carson City and New Orleans mints, respectively – both of which ceased production around the turn of the 20th Century.
