Hi everyone.
I purchased this silver round back in 2019, just dug it out to take pictures. Does anyone have any facts about its origins, how many were produced, etc.? It's stamped on the edge with #3171 and the traditional Morgan is included for scale. Thank you.

    wonder what their definition of "fine silver" is.

    The decline from democracy to tyranny is both a natural and inevitable one.

    If it's a silver piece it should say .999 on the rim.
    If you could find out who made it that might help on the mintage.

    Does it have a certificate of authenticity?

    Looks like a hallmark to the right of the eagle. Might be a clue.

    You might want to have this one checked xrf. I have seen some that are silver over copper, some .925 or lower amount of silver, especially since it dos'nt state .999.. sigma may or may not work on this one also

    I have a one pound ASE...but that is pure silver, documented (and confirmed). Cheers, RickO

    Usually "FINE SILVER" means pure silver but it wouldn't hurt to check it with a Sigma machine.

    See the 'another one' link and the link with papers I posted. Federal Coin Fund, should be legit silver. They made pound ASEs as well as other designs.

    Telemarketing sales I'd assume.

    Also, check the edge.

    Hi, thanks for all the responses.

    When I purchased it, I had it massed and it came in at 373+ grams, which would correspond to 12 troy oz. of silver.

    The edge has a number stamped on it (#3171) but no indication of silver purity.

    There is no COA.

    I did a web search of the term "fine silver" and it's the same as "pure silver" or "999 fine silver".

    Fine Silver is .999. That’s the wording on the ASEs.
