Gorgeous Silver Eagle Imagery
Obverse: Lady Liberty is portrayed on the obverse confidently striding toward the rising sun, while draped in an American Flag. "LIBERTY," "2012" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed. This image first appeared on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin designed by acclaimed medallic and architectural sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: The reverse features a patriotic design by renowned American sculptor John Mercanti, depicting a magnificent heraldic eagle behind a striped shield clutching arrows and an olive branch, with thirteen stars above. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Mr. Mercanti served as the Mint's 12th Chief Engraver from 2006-2010.
