Stunning Beauty of the Walking Liberty Design

Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted walking on the obverse enveloped in the folds of the American flag. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "1986." This timeless personification of Liberty was originally struck on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by Adolph A. Weinman, a prolific medallic and architectural sculptor of the early 20th century.

Reverse: A heraldic eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows adorns the reverse, surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "S" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." This heraldic eagle graphic, designed by John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint's 12th Chief Engraver, represents the iconic Type-1 variety of the Silver Eagle, which was issued from 1986 until mid-2021.
