The US Silver Eagle was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. The main reason I begin with the US Silver Eagle was the astounding investment liquidity. Aside from the Silver Eagle coin being legal tender in the United States, officially worth one US dollar, their design and US government backing makes them convertible into currency worldwide.
2) Canadian Maple Leaf
The Royal Canadian Mint has minted the silver Maple Leaf since 1988. This is the purest silver coin in my collection with a 99.99% fine silver purity. The Royal Canadian Mint is one of the most respected mints in the world due to their adherence to quality and purity. The face value of the silver Maple Leaf is set to 5 Canadian Dollars though its intrinsic silver value is far higher as the coins are traded the world over according to the market rate for silver.
3) Australian Perth Mint
Australian Perth Mint Silver Lunar Rabbit features two rabbits nestling under foliage on the reserve.
The reverse of each coin depicts two rabbits nestling under foliage. The Chinese character for ‘rabbit’ and the inscription ‘Year of the Rabbit’ also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2011 year-date and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse of each coin.
