The 1994 1 oz Silver American Eagle coin shares a number of features with its predecessors dating back to 1986 which includes its design, purity (99.9% silver) and face value ($1 USD). The 1994 1 oz. Silver American Eagles featured in this particular collection are available in uncirculated condition.
The United States Mint struck the first Silver American Eagle coins on October 29, 1986 at its San Francisco Mint facility on the West Coast. The decision to begin minting silver coins came in response to a growing federal deficit in the 1970s and 1980s. The administration of President Ronald Reagan, hoping to raise money and lower the deficit, proposed selling off silver from the Defense National Stockpile with a commemorative coin. The decision created a lot of political rambling and economic concern, but over time the Silver American Eagle coin has become so beloved that it is considered the official silver bullion coin of the United States.
On the obverse side of the 1994 1 oz Silver American Eagle coin is Adolph A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” image. His take on Lady Liberty, the Walking Liberty image was first designed in 1916 and used on the U.S. Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Those coins were minted between 1916 and 1947. In the image, Lady Liberty is seen walking toward the setting sun. Above her head is the word “Liberty,” and at her heel is the phrase “In God We Trust.”
The image on the reverse side of the coin was designed by the chief designer at the United States Mint, John Mercanti. His bald eagle is seen behind a heraldic shield, with an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon. Above the eagles head are 13 stars that represent the original 13 American colonies.
The US Mint is responsible for minting all circulation, proof, and bullion coins for the federal government. This job is carried out at a number of facilities around the country, but only the San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint have ever produced the Silver American Eagle coin.
