The classic obverse of the coin originated in 1916 on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar which was designed by Adolph A. Weinman. The resonant image is that of Lady Liberty striding confidently across the landscape. She is depicted with her arm raised as she carries branches of oak and laurel. She is also swaddled in the American Flag. The reverse of the coin was designed by John M. Mercanti. It features a strong and proud American Bald Eagle. His wings are spread as he clutches arrows and an olive branch. Overhead is an inverted triangle made of thirteen stars. The most unique feature of this new Proof Silver Eagle, is that this stunning Proof Silver Eagle will have incused edge lettering reading "30th ANNIVERSARY."
