The Statue of Liberty and bald eagle are two of the most iconic images associated with the United States of America. The bald eagle, America’s official national emblem since 1782, is revered for its longevity, strength, and majesty. Lady Liberty has been welcoming immigrants from around the globe to America’s shores each year, as they arrived in boats by the millions seeking freedom. Together with each of the other year’s in the series, the 1989 1 oz. Silver American Eagle has the same features and contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Minted by the United States Mint
- Carries a $1 face value backed by the US government.
- Individual coins ship in plastic sleeves, multiples of 20 ship in mint-sealed tubes and multiples of 500 ship in monster boxes.
The two images that grace each side of the 1989 1 oz Silver American Eagle were created 100 years apart, but both speak to the strength and power of the United States. Adolph A. Weinman created Lady Liberty in the “Walking Liberty” image in 1916 for use on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. That coin remained in production until 1947. On the opposite side is John Mercanti’s heraldic bald eagle design. Mercanti, the chief designer at the US Mint, created the image in 1986 for use on the Silver American Eagle coins.
The Walking Liberty image shows Lady Liberty walking west toward the setting sun. The word “Liberty” is stamped above her head, while the phrase “In God We Trust” is stamped at her heels. On the reverse side, Mercanti’s heraldic eagle features a vast array of intricate details. The bald eagle clasps an olive branch in its right talon, a sign of peace. Arrows are held in its left talon, a sign of its preparation to defend the United States of America. Over the eagle’s head are 13 stars that represent America’s 13 original colonies.
The United States Mint is the official mint of the federal government. Its responsibilities include producing circulation coins, proof coins, and bullion coins. The San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint are the only facilities in the US Mint system to have produced Silver American Eagle coins. The 1989 1 oz. Silver American Eagle was produced in a run totaling 5,821,021 coins. These coins are available in uncirculated condition.
