There are few images in this world that are identified with America in the manner of the bald eagle. The nation’s official emblem since 1782, the bald eagle’s majesty, strength, and long life have become associated with America’s longevity and power in the world. Today, the bald eagle is featured in the logo of numerous federal agencies and bullion coins produced by the US Mint. The 1992 1 oz. Silver American Eagle is part of a long running silver bullion series that is considered the official silver bullion coin of the United States. Each coin features 99.9% pure silver, weighs 1 troy ounce and has been assigned a $1 USD legal tender value.
The very first Silver American Eagles were minted in 1986 at the US Mint’s San Francisco facility. Silver American Eagle coins were the brainchild of the Reagan Administration. As the government sought to balance the federal budget, a decision was made to sell off silver stores from the Defense National Stockpile in the form of commemorative coins. The Silver American Eagles were produced in three runs (bullion, uncirculated, and proof) at the San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint.
The Lady Liberty and bald eagle images featured on the 1992 1 oz. Silver American Eagle were designed by Adolph A. Weinman and John Mercanti, respectively. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” image was created in 1916 for use on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, which remained in production until 1947. Mercanti, the chief designer at the US Mint, created the heraldic eagle with the imagery war and peace (an olive branch in one talon, arrows in the other).
Lady Liberty is featured on the coin’s obverse side, walking toward the setting sun in the west. On the reverse side of the coin, Mercanti’s heraldic eagle is printed with 13 stars above its head to represent the 13 original colonies of America.
The US Mint is responsible for producing all of the coinage used in the American economy.
