In the early 20th century, American coin design entered what most believe to be its Golden Age. The movement started under President Theodore Roosevelt, who commissioned artist and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to revitalize American gold coins. One of his students, Adolph A. Weinman, created another of the nation’s most iconic images. That image is now featured on the 1 oz Sunshine Mint Walking Liberty Silver Round, available today through Silver.com.
More and more often investors are turning to rounds as a way to invest in silver as they are a great alternative to silver bars due to their low premiums over the spot price of silver.
- Design inspired by Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty.
- Consists of one ounce of .999 fine silver.
- Struck by the Sunshine Mint in Idaho, USA.

Silver Rounds offer an excellent option for investors and collectors looking for precious metal products with iconic designs, and more affordable prices or greater availability. The 1 oz Sunshine Mint Walking Liberty Silver Round is so-named as a round because it bears no face value. However, its silver content and design give it value all its own.
Adolph A. Weinman created the Walking Liberty design featured on this silver round in 1916 for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. That silver coin program continued through 1947, and Weinman’s creation lives on today on the obverse face of the sovereign silver coin of the United States; the American Silver Eagle.
On the obverse face of this 1 oz Sunshine Mint Walking Liberty Silver Round is the image of Lady Liberty as she strides toward the setting sun. With an American flag draped across her shoulders, the image is indicative of the nation’s march toward a brighter future.
The reverse side of these silver rounds features the bald eagle, America’s national emblem, with the traditional arrows of war and olive branch of peace included. Idaho’s Sunshine Mint produces these silver rounds each year. The Mint is a privately-owned entity with facilities in Idaho, Nevada, and Shanghai. In addition to producing its own rounds, it provides high quality silver and gold blanks to some of the world’s largest mints, including the United States Mint.
