The bald eagle was selected in 1792 as the country’s national emblem. It was known as an animal with power, majesty, and longevity. Since that time, the bald eagle has been used on numerous coin series and federal government logos. Today, one of the most popular uses for the bald eagle is on the Silver American Eagle coin. The 1 oz Silver American Eagle contains one troy ounce of 99.9% fine silver and has a one dollar face value.

With the passage of the Liberty Coin Act by the US Congress in 1985, the federal government had an official silver bullion coin in the form of the Silver American Eagle. The silver for all coins produced in the series originally came from the Defense National Stockpile, and was mined in the US. In 2002, Congress authorized the extension of the program by allowing the Treasury Department to purchase additional silver on the open market once the initial supply was exhausted.
All Silver American Eagle coins have the same design. On the obverse is Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design. Originally struck on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, the design includes Lady Liberty walking toward the rising sun. Her image is surrounded by the engravings of “LIBERTY,” the year of minting, and the phrase “In God We Trust.”
The reverse of the coin features an image designed by John Mercanti, the US Mint’s chief engraver. The image has a bald eagle set behind a heraldic shield, grasping a cluster of arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Above its head are 13 stars representing the original American colonies. The eagle is surrounded by engravings that include “United States of America,” the weight and metal content of the coin, as well as its face value.
The US Mint is the official producer of circulation currency for the US federal government. All Silver American Eagle coins are produced at three facilities in the US Mint system: the Philadelphia Mint, San Francisco Mint, and West Point Mint. These 1995 1 oz Silver American Eagle coins have been certified as MS69 grade by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. MS69-graded coins have sharp, attractive strikes on their face, as well as few flaws on the coin.
