These Silver Eagle bullion coins were also available in a 25th-anniversary set that included a 2011-S Burnished Silver Eagle struck at the San Francisco Mint and a 2011-P Reverse Proof Silver Eagle struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The standard proof and burnished coins were also produced in 2011.
On the obverse of Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Walking Liberty. The design was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and featured on the half-dollar until 1947.
