The Silver American Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States and has been minted each year since congress authorized the program in 1985. Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design is featured on the coin’s obverse. The design was first used on Walking Liberty Half Dollars in the early 1900s. John Mercanti, the US Mint’s chief engraver, created the heraldic eagle on the reverse specifically for the coin in 1986.
On the obverse side is the iconic Walking Liberty. In the image, Lady Liberty can be seen walking away from the rising sun. In her right hand she holds oak and laurel branches, representing America’s civic and military prowess. Engravings include “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and “2012.”
The reverse features the heraldic eagle. The eagle is depicted behind a shield, clutching arrows and an olive branch in its talons. Thirteen stars over its head represent America’s original colonies. Engravings include “United States of America,” “1 Oz Fine Silver ~ One Dollar” and the “S” mint mark.
