Spectacular patriotic design of the American Silver Eagle
The obverse gives new life to the iconic "Walking Liberty" Half Dollar coin designed in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, which remains one of the most beloved designs on U.S. coinage, depicting Lady Liberty gracefully walking towards the morning sunrise, wrapped in a flowing American flag, carrying a laurel and oak bouquet.
The reverse, designed by 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, John Mercanti, portrays a bald eagle with a shield; an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left, echoing the Great Seal of the U.S. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
