Featuring Stunning Designs by Adolph Weinman and John Mercanti
Obverse: Adolph Weinman's obverse design first appeared on the Half Dollar from 1916-1947 before returning for this series. It features an American flag draped Liberty carrying laurel and oak branches against a backdrop of the rising sun. "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2017" are inscribed on this face. Adolph Weinman was one of the most important contributors to the American numismatic renaissance of the early 20th century. His best known contributions were the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime
Reverse: John Mercanti's reverse design is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle guards a union shield while holding symbols of war and peace, arrows and an olive branch, under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. Rim inscriptions offer the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent almost 40 years with the US Mint, including time as its Chief Engraver. He has designed more medals and coins than anyone else in the history of the institution.
