These early leaders of the nation believed the bird embodied the characteristics of the newfound nation and its people. Today, the Silver American Eagle is one of the most popular silver bullion coins in the world. This 2003 1 oz Silver American Eagle coin is available in uncirculated condition.

The United States Congress authorized the production of Silver American Eagle coins in July 1985 with the passage of the Liberty Coin Act. The bill allowed the Treasury Department to use silver stores from the Defense National Stockpile to produce silver bullion coins to sell to the public. The effort was undertaken to help raise funds for the federal government. The program has been so popular with collectors and investors that it was extended in 2002.
On the obverse side of the 2003 1 oz Silver American Eagle coin is the infamous image of Walking Liberty as designed by Adolph A. Weinman. First used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the image features Lady Liberty walking toward the setting sun with her right hand outstretched. Engravings include the word “LIBERTY,” the phrase “In God We Trust,” and the year of minting.
The reverse features John Mercanti’s image of a heraldic eagle. The chief engraver at the US Mint, Mercanti designed an image with a bald eagle behind a shield. In one talon it clutched arrows, while the other held an olive branch. Above its head are 13 stars representing the original American colonies. Engravings on this side include “United States of America,” as well as the weight, purity, metal content, and face value of the coin.
Congress founded the United States Mint with the passage of the Coinage Act of 1792.
