The design of the GEM Uncirculated 2015 Silver Eagle
The archival holder of your Gem Uncirculated 2015 American Silver Eagle coin features the Toronto Blue Jays label… but the coin itself is already an enduring American tradition, beloved by collectors the world over for its striking design.
The obverse of the American Silver Eagle features “Walking Liberty”, an image first showcased on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar (1916-1947) and created by Adolph A. Weinman. On your 2015 American Silver Eagle, Lady Liberty strides boldly forward, stretching out her arm toward the rising sun as she holds olive branches in her other arm. The obverse is engraved with the inscriptions “2015,” “LIBERTY,” and the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
The reverse of the coin uses a more modern image, designed by former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti. In it, an eagle rises behind a heraldic shield, wings outspread, beneath a shower of thirteen stars. In its talons the eagle holds an olive branch and arrows, representing both peace and national protection. The eagle is surmounted by thirteen stars, and the inscriptions on the reverse include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER—ONE DOLLAR” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
