Why purchase this specially labeled 1987 American Silver Eagle?
This gorgeous 1987 American Silver Eagle hails from the second year of release of the U.S. Mint's official silver bullion coin series. Struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, the coin measures 40.6 mm in diameter and is counted among a final reported mintage of 11,442,335.
The American Silver Eagle's Classic Patriotic Design
The obverse replicates Adolph A. Weinman's iconic 1916 design for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin. Lady Liberty is portrayed as a vision of confident elegance as she gracefully walks towards the morning sunrise draped in the folds of an American flag, with a cluster of laurel and oak branches in her grasp.
The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, portrays a bald eagle behind a shield, clutching an olive branch and arrows; an homage to Great Seal of the United States. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
