American Silver Eagle coins feature the historic design of Walking Liberty which was originally created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916 for the US half dollar. This fantastic image is of vast historical importance and wonderfully depicts Liberty walking toward the sun on the horizon. This acts as a symbol of the nation’s constant pursuit of a brighter future, which is one of the founding concepts of the United States of America and still rings true today. The depiction was also found on the US half dollar from 1916 to 1947.
On the obverse of this spectacular coin is that design of Walking Liberty. In left-profile relief, Liberty walks toward the sun on the horizon with her right arm outstretched and the American flag draped over her shoulders. In her left hand, she holds branches of laurel and oak to signify Americas civil and military glory.
The reverse of the 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin includes the image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Originally created all the way back in 1794 for the first-ever US coins struck by the original Philadelphia Mint, the heraldic eagle initially featured a small, fragile-looking eagle. Americas Founding Fathers pushed for a more powerful bird to symbolize the spirit and resilience of American people and the current version was conjured up. This design was finalized in 1986 for the American Silver Eagle by John Mercanti. At the time, Mercanti was an artist-engraver at the Philadelphia Mint and would later go on to serve as the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint (2006-2010). A true American hero, this coin holds a massive amount of historical and cultural value, as well as monetary value for collectors and investments in precious metals, not to mention American patriots.
