This is not Adolph A. Weinman’s first appearance in the American Eagle Series. His design of Walking Liberty from the American half-dollar coin (1916-1947) is featured on the Silver American Eagle, and now he is the first artist whose work appears on both sides of an American Eagle coin.
All 2017 1 oz Palladium American Eagle Coins in this listing are near-perfect according to the NGC. Coins with a grade of Mint State 69 feature full, original mint luster and bear a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin’s surface, these flaws include miniscule hairlines and contact marks.
The Early Release designation on these coins indicates that the NGC received them for certification within the first 30 days of their official release in 2017 by the United States Mint. Coins must be received by the NGC directly or at an approved third-party depository.
On the reverse of the Palladium American Eagle Coin is Weinman’s depiction of the bald eagle. The bird is featured resting on a cliff edge with its wings up in the air behind it, and its talons clutching a large olive branch. The design was created in 1907 by Weinman for the American Institute of Architects gold medal.
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz Palladium American Eagle Coin features Winged Liberty from Weinman. Used on the American dime starting in 1916, Winged Liberty was often referred to as the Mercury Dime because her winged Phrygian cap reminded Americans of the Roman messenger god Mercury. Liberty is surrounded by engravings of “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” “2017,” and “AW” for Weinman’s initials.
