Burnished Silver Eagles start out on the same silver bullion blanks the United States Mint uses for its bullion and proof versions of the coin. From there, the production of these coins separates to result in something truly unique and beautiful. Blanks are handled by gloved hands when loaded into the coin presses, struck individually, and immediately removed by gloved hands to protect the visual finish.

On the obverse of all Burnished Silver American Eagle coins, you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Her depiction on these coins was originally created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman for use on the nation’s half-dollar coin. It was modernized for use on the Silver American Eagle when the coins debuted in 1986.
The reverse of the 2011-W 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagle coin bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. Modified by John Mercanti in 1986 for these coins, a powerful eagle has the national shield on its chest and clutches the arrows of war in one talon, with the olive branch of peace in the other.
All Silver Eagles are produced by the United States Mint. The West Point Mint is the exclusive coining center for burnished coins, each of which features the “W” mint mark on the reverse to note that fact.
