The United States Mint is a bureau of the Department of the Treasury responsible for producing coinage for the United States to conduct its trade and commerce, as well as controlling the movement of bullion. It does not produce paper money; that responsibility belongs to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing
The 29th issue from the annual American Silver Eagle program by the U.S. Mint displays one of the most popular and beloved designs in American coinage. Combined with its iconic design and .999 fine Silver content, further adds to its bullion appeal.
