The obverse recreates the classic 1916 Walking Liberty design, created by Adolph Weinman. Lady Liberty is shown striding confidently toward the left, where the rising sun of a hopeful new day is seen over the horizon. Miss Liberty holds branches of laurel and oak while her arm is outstretched in a beckoning gesture. She is draped in a garment designed to look like the American flag. The legend "LIBERTY" curls around the top rim, while the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" appears at the bottom-right corner. The year-date "2016" is placed at the bottom rim.
On the reverse, John Mercanti's heraldic eagle design is shown. A bald eagle protected by a hovering shield is depicted with its wings spread. A ribbon clasped in the eagle's beak reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM," Latin for "Out of Many, One." Thirteen stars hover above the eagle's head, and it holds arrows in one talon and an olive branch in another. This symbolizes the United States' desire for peace yet preparedness for war. The issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" runs across the top rim. At the bottom rim, the coin's specifications and denomination are listed, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR."
2016 marks the 100th anniversary of A.A. Weinman's "Walking Liberty" design, which graces the obverse of the Silver Eagle. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the beginning American Eagle bullion coin program.Since then, the American Silver Eagle has become the world's most popular silver bullion coin, with well over 400 million sold since 1986. Don't wait until the usual supply shortage from the Mint hits. Grab your 2016 American Silver Eagle monster box of 500 troy ounces of U.S. government-guaranteed silver today!
