The 2017 Brilliant Uncirculated American Silver Eagle is United States' official silver bullion coin. It carries the designs of two talented artists, Adolph A. Weinman and John Mercanti. The obverse has Weinman's Walking Liberty design, that was first used on the half-dollar coin between 1916 and 1947.
It is considered one of the most popular designs available. The reverse shows Mercanti's efforts to pay homage to the Great Seal of the United States with a bald eagle design. With the coins being guaranteed by the United States Government, the Silver Eagle is a tangible hedge against inflation. Each one is minted with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver from the United States.
