The Silver Eagle coin debuted in 1986 from the United States Mint with a bullion and proof version of the coin. Both coins represented the greater, official silver coin program of the United States. To mark its 20th anniversary, the US Mint issued a new Silver Eagle coin for sale in the form of the Burnished Silver Eagle.

Introduced in 2006 for the first time, Burnished Silver American Eagle coins have the lowest mintage in the Silver Eagle Series and the most beautiful visual aspects. Burnished coins start as typical silver blanks, but are treated to a different coining process compared to the bullion and proof versions.
Burnished coins start as blanks which are loaded into drums and rolled around with a burnishing medium. In many cases, that medium is a collection of steel or other metal balls which help to polish the blanks through burnishing contact. This provides impressive luster and brightness to the coins. Each one is then loaded by gloved hand for coining and removed by gloved hand after it is struck to be packaged immediately.
All 2014-W 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagle Coins are available inside of their original US Mint display boxes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Of the 253,169 coins struck in the Burnished Silver Eagle issue in 2014, 28,637 of those coins were not available for individual purchase as they were part of the Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.
The obverse of all Silver Eagles features the Walking Liberty design. Created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, Walking Liberty originally appeared on the US half-dollar coin until 1947. On the reverse of 2014 Burnished Silver American Eagle coins is the heraldic eagle of the US. First used on the original American coins struck in 1794 at the old Philadelphia Mint, it was modified for the Silver Eagle in 1986 by John Mercanti.
