The American Silver Eagle has been a remarkably successful coin program since its introduction in 1986. Originally intended to deplete the U.S. strategic stockpile of silver, the program has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. You can own a certified example of this coin with the highest possible grade with the 2018 American Silver Eagle NGC MS70 First Day of Issue - Bald Eagle Label! In addition to being struck from .999 fine silver and containing 1 troy ounce of pure silver content, this coin was graded on the first day it was issued and comes in the special edition Bald Eagle Label holder from NGC.
Adolph Weinman's classic design called "Walking Liberty" appears on the obverse of the coin. Miss Liberty wears an elegant gown designed like the American flag as she confidently marches toward the sun peeking over the horizon, representing the dawn of a new era in history. "IN GOD WE TRUST" appears to her right while the year-date "2018" is found at the bottom rim. The customary legend "LIBERTY" is spaced out along the top half of the outer rim.
The reverse uses the heraldic eagle theme created by retired U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti. Protecting by a Union shield, the eagle poses with its wings spread while clasping a banner with the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" bends along the top rim. At the bottom rim, there are inscriptions for the composition of the coin and its denomination: "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR."
