The 2003 American Silver Eagle is very popular one-ounce bullion coins with a fineness of .999, which makes them virtually pure.
While categorically defined as bullion coins, American silver eagles actually have a large following of coin collectors, who appreciate the coin for its large size (40.6 millimeter diameter) and beautiful design, which pays homage to the Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, which was on the half dollar from 1916 through 1947.
