America was founded by a group of individuals fleeing persecution in the Old World, and seeking freedom and liberty in the New World. As a result of those enduring beliefs, Lady Liberty and the Bald Eagle have become national symbols for American pride around the globe. Lady Liberty represents the open arms with which America welcomes immigrants from all corners of the globe. The Bald Eagle’s freedom of flight represents the American spirit.

These two iconic images have been combined on the Silver American Eagles, minted by the United States Mint. The 1995 1 oz. Silver American Eagle, along with all other coins in the series, shares a number of common features which have went unchanged throughout the years. Each coin weighs 1 troy ounce, is minted in 99.9% pure silver and has a legal tender value of $1 USD. The coins in this particular collection are in uncirculated condition.
The Silver American Eagle coin series was first minted in 1986 as a part of a federal government initiative to raise funds for the government and balance the federal budget. The idea was to mint a commemorative coin using the nation’s silver stores, kept in the Defense National Stockpile. The first Silver American Eagle coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint on October 29, 1986. Throughout its history, the Silver American Eagle has been minted at three institutions in the US Mint system.
In addition to the San Francisco Mint, the Philadelphia Mint and West Point Mint have also shared the responsibility of producing various Silver American Eagle coin series. The 1995 1 oz Silver American Eagle is a special coin in the series. Unlike its predecessors, a special proof coin was minted in West Point to market as a 10th anniversary minting of the Silver American Eagle.
The 1995 1 oz Silver American Eagle has the same design features as all of the coins in this series. On the obverse side, collectors will see Lady Liberty in Adolph A. Weinman’s famous “Walking Liberty” pose as she strides toward the setting sun. Etched over her head is the word “Liberty,” while the phrase “In God We Trust” is at her heels. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” design was first displayed in 1916 on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin series that was produced until 1947.
On the reverse side, collectors will find John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle design. Mercanti is the chief designer at the US Mint. His heraldic eagle features the shield of the United States of America. The eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon, and arrows in its left. Above its head are 13 stars, representing America’s 13 original colonies.
