The Liberty Coin Act of 1985 authorized the production of an official silver bullion coin for the United States. Conceived as a bullion program, the Silver American Eagle was at first introduced in both bullion and proof strikings. A third, burnished version of the coin was introduced upon the program’s 20th anniversary in 2006.
All Silver American Eagle coins are produced at one of three mints in the US Mint system: San Francisco, Philadelphia, or West Point. Bullion coins feature no mint marks, but proof coins have been struck at all three facilities. Proof coins were struck in San Francisco from 1986 to 1992, Philadelphia from 1993 to 2000, and since 2001, at West Point. All burnished coins are struck at the West Point Mint.
Silver American Eagle coins feature the classic image of Lady Liberty originally found on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, in circulation from 1916 to 1947. Adolph A. Weinman was responsible for the design, while US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti designed the coin’s reverse image of the heraldic eagle.
