Silver American Eagle coins are the US Mint’s best-seller each year. The coins debuted in 1986 and currently consist of these bullion coins for investors, proof coins for collectors, and a second collectible coin in the form of the burnished coin. The bullion coin remains the highest minted coin of the three by a wide margin.
On the obverse face of Silver American Eagles is the image of Walking Liberty. Designed in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, this was one of two Weinman creations to eventually feature on circulation US coinage alongside the Winged Liberty for the US dime. The Walking Liberty vision appeared on the US half-dollar coin from 1916 to 1947 and is considered among the greatest American coin designs ever.
The reverse side of 2018 1 oz Silver American Eagle Coins includes the image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The heraldic eagle first featured on coins struck by the original Philadelphia Mint in 1794. The modern design used here is from John Mercanti and depicts a powerful bald eagle behind the national shield. It clutches arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other, with a triangular cluster of 13 stars above its head representing the original colonies.
