Burnished Silver Eagle coins have had an up-and-down history at the US Mint. Introduced in 2006, they were struck in figures near those of the Proof Silver Eagle from 2006 to 2008, but sidelined in 2009 and 2010 by the intense uptick in demand for silver bullion coins. While demand has been significantly lower since 2011, the 2016 issue of the coin had a red-hot start selling 134,925 units in its first week of availability.
On the obverse of these 2017-W 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Walking Liberty. First used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, it was designed by Adolph A. Weinman and is often regarded as one of the top two designs in American coining history.
The reverse of the Silver American Eagle features the heraldic eagle of the United States. This iconic symbol of the nation was introduced on the nation’s very first coins from the Philadelphia Mint in 1794. This is the modern depiction refined by John Mercanti in 1986. Mercanti served as Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 2006 to 2010.
