Anybody heard of these? Can someone please tell me how these are different than the silver Eagles? Aren't they both 1 oz.?

No they're not. The silver dollar is 90% silver. Here's a good website for those kinds of questions:

Daveman,

As chux03 mentioned, they are definitely not the same as Eagles, but still worth a look. They fall into the category of 'semi-numismatic' coins, meaning they command a premium to the spot price. Folks just tend to like these beauties, and are willing to pay a little more than they would for common date silver quarters, etc. Once you hold one in your hand I think you will see and feel the attraction.

Thanks for the help guys. Silver is silver though, right? Wouldn't it make more sense to stick with .999 silver than just 90% silver for the same price, or even lower?

Daveman,

The most silver for the lowest price is a good rule of thumb, but diversification is a good principle to follow in this market as in any other.
