Each 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver American Eagle available to you in this listing comes inside of a plastic capsule. The coins in this issue are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and feature a thin layer of colorized lacquer applied to select design elements. Please note that the US Mint does not directly colorize any of its bullion products. The impressive colorization was added after production by an authorized third-party dealer.
The application of colorized lacquer to silver bullion coins does nothing to detract from the silver purity of the product itself. Instead, this thin layer of colorization adds unique flare and collectible appeal to an already brilliant investment-grade bullion coin.
Walking Liberty is depicted on the obverse of all 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver American Eagles. Her figure is shown in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the eastern horizon. This design was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman for the US Mint at a time when it was redesigning all of its major coin denominations. The Walking Liberty effigy was chosen for the half dollar and featured on that coin in circulation from 1916 to 1947.
The application of the colorized lacquer on these coins is limited to Liberty’s figure and the design elements of the sun, mountain, and valley below. She wears a striped dress of warm red and gold hues. She walks on a lush green valley toward a mountain peak above which the bright-yellow sun is rising. The oak and laurel branches she carries in her left hand are in full bloom with rich greens, reds, and yellows. Lastly, the American flag flutters in its brilliant red, white, and blue over her shoulders.
For the reverse field, 2020 1 oz Colorized Silver American Eagles offer up the image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. This iconic emblem of the nation includes the powerful bald eagle with the heraldic shield of the US on its chest. The bird clutches an olive branch in one talon and the arrows of war in the other. The ribbon in its beak says “E Pluribus Unum,” while a triangular cluster of 13 stars is above its head.
