When the United States Mint released the American Silver Eagle in 1986, the coin was made available in bullion and proof. These two versions of the coin persist today, with these bullion versions struck in every year without fail. The US Mint released a brand new burnished version of the coin in 2006 to mark the 20th anniversary of the program, giving the American Silver Eagle three variants.
Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design, featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, graces the obverse of the 2017 Silver American Eagle. It is meant to depict the nation’s drive toward a brighter future as Liberty walks, draped in the American flag.
John Mercanti, Chief Engraver of the United States Mint (1986-2010) created the heraldic eagle image on the reverse of each coin. The heraldic eagle has featured on American coinage since 1794, with various upgrades and modernizations to its design over the course of time.
All Silver American Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. While the West Point Mint bears most of that burden, intense demand has pressed the San Francisco Mint back into production of Silver Eagle bullion coins for the first time since the early 1990s.
