Classic Walking Liberty Design
The obverse design for the Silver Eagle was taken from the Walking Liberty half dollar. Adolph Weinman designed that piece in 1916. Liberty appears at the center striding toward the left side of the coin, where the sun is on the horizon. She is draped in an American flag and has a Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom from slavery, atop her head. In her left hand, she bears branches of laurel and oak, which are symbols of honors bestowed upon civilians and members of the military.
John Mercanti's reverse design was modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. It features an eagle guarding a union shield. Thirteen stars are arranged above the bird's head, symbolizing the original states. In its beak it holds a ribbon with the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one).
Perfect Grade from NGC
