Design of the 2013 Silver Eagles in GEM BU
The obverse of these 2013 American Silver Eagles (ASE) features a modification of the 1916 Walking Liberty design created by Adolph Weinman. The name of the goddess who is featured on the coin, "LIBERTY," is inscribed along the rim on the top half of the coin. In the lower left is the sun, which is partially obscured and has rays emanating upwards and behind Liberty. In the foreground, Liberty strides toward the left side of the coin. She carries olive branches, international symbols of peace, in her left hand. They are cradled in her arm and stretch over her left shoulder. Her garment flows freely, as though in a breeze. Above her left foot, which extends behind her, is the inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Just below her right foot, the mintage year, "2013," is inscribed. That inscription is horizontal, level with the ground as opposed to following the curvature of the coin.
On the reverse of these 2013 Silver Eagles is John Mercanti's 1986 adaptation of the image found on the Great Seal of the United States. A shield appears in the middle, guarded by an eagle that has its wings spread out vertically. A ribbon held in the beak of the eagle bears the motto from the Great Seal, "E PLURIBUS UNUM." In one of the bird's talons is a symbol of peace, an olive branch. In the other are arrows, indications of a willingness to fight for the nation's values when necessary. "JM," the initials of the man who created the design, appear under the talon that bears the arrows. Pointing down toward the eagle's head is an arrangement of thirteen stars, which hark back to the original thirteen colonies. The name of the country whose legal tender the coins are, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed around the top half of the rim. Along the bottom half of the rim is information about the coin's metal content and its face value. That inscription reads, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR."
