Originally introduced in a bullion and proof version in 1986, today the Silver American Eagle is also available in a burnished version, which was introduced on the 20th anniversary of the program in 2006. While its gold counterpart program boasts four total weights, the Silver American Eagle is available only in the traditional 1 oz. coin weight.
On the obverse of all Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Lady Liberty as created by Adolph A. Weinman. First featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, Weinman’s depiction features Lady Liberty striding forward toward the setting sun, and is symbolic of the nation’s drive toward a brighter future.
The reverse features the image of the heraldic eagle. Designed by John Mercanti in 1986 for the Silver American Eagle, this creation features the bald eagle set behind a shield, with arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other.
