Silver American Eagles debuted from the United States Mint in 1986. That year saw the introduction of both the bullion and proof versions of the coin in 1 oz silver, with the burnished coin later added in 2006 during the 20th-anniversary celebration of the series. Only three times has the US Mint not issued one of these three types of the coin. In 2009, both the proof and burnished coins were suspended. Burnished coins were again suspended in 2010.
All 2020 1 oz Silver American Eagles listed here are in Mint State 70 condition according to the NGC. Considered perfect coins, each one has its full, original mint luster and features no detracting flaws of any kind on the design elements or in the background fields. The MS70 certification is the highest grade on the Sheldon numeric scale used to grade coins.
Walking Liberty from Adolph A. Weinman has been the obverse design of the Silver American Eagle since its 1986 introduction. Prior to its use on these coins, Walking Liberty featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Designed in 1916, it was used on the half dollar until 1947 when it was replaced by the Franklin Half Dollar design.
The heraldic eagle of the United States is found on the reverse of the 2020 1 oz Silver American Eagle. This design is the modern interpretation of the national emblem. It features an American bald eagle at the center with the national heraldic shield on its chest, the arrows of war in one talon, and the olive branch of peace in the other.
