American Silver Eagle Design and Coin Highlights
Every coin can be thought of as a canvas for a work of art. This is certainly true with the Silver Eagle. Its beautiful design was created by A.A. Weinman, first minted in 1916 and originally used for the half dollar. It was officially known as the Walking Liberty half dollar and is a gem of American coinage. Today, this iconic coin design is synonymous with the American Silver Eagle. It remains one of the most popular designs on a coin ever.
The obverse design shows Lady Liberty draped in the American flag as she carries an oak branch and laurel in her left arm. The rising sun can be seen over the horizon, symbolizing the dawn of a new day. Miss Liberty has her other arm outstretched as the dress billows over her shoulder. The edge uses a reeded pattern. In terms of diameter, the coin measures 40.6 mm across. It is 2.98 mm in thickness.
A new reverse design (Type 2) was introduced to the Silver Eagle series for the first year in 2021. It was designed by artist Emily Damstra and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the coin's release. The reverse of the coin depicts an eagle in mid-flight. Its wings are spread as it carries an olive branch in its talons. The legal tender face value of "ONE DOLLAR" and fine silver weight of the coin are inscribed along the bottom rim. You will also find an inscription for the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
The previous reverse design (Type 1) had appeared on the Silver Eagle since 1986 when the coin was first released, thanks to the Liberty Coin Act of 1985. The Type 1 reverse features an American bald eagle, shown in a heraldic eagle pose. It was designed by American sculptor John Mercanti, who also became Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. The coins are produced at the Philadelphia Mint, San Francisco Mint, and West Point Mint. However, they generally will not have a mint mark.
Reverse Proof and proof versions of the Silver Eagle are sold directly to collectors by the U.S. Mint. The bullion version is only available through Authorized Distributors. These are sold based on their intrinsic value of one ounce of silver, including a premium over the silver spot price. Proof Silver Eagles and other collectible versions such as Uncirculated Silver Eagles and Burnished Silver Eagles may bear a W mint mark. These collector's coins come at a significant premium above silver prices.
The Walking Liberty motif on the American Silver Eagle is beloved by many coin collectors all around the world. It stands as a collector favorite even more than 100 years after its creation. This undeniable artistic beauty is combined with the coin's trusted pedigree as the official silver bullion coin of the U.S. Its silver content is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. For these reasons, the Silver Eagle is the most popular modern silver coin on the planet.
