Striking Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
One of the most highly acclaimed designs in American numismatic history, Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty, features on the obverse. The design was revived for the Silver Eagle series after spending 32 years on the half dollar from 1916-1947. Liberty is the picture of patriotism, draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes her freedom from slavery, on her head. She carries laurel and oak branches, ancient symbols of civilian and military honors. She extends her right hand in front of her, as though presenting the new day to to the holder as the sun rises from below the horizon. "LIBERTY" and "2019" are inscribed above and below, while "IN GOD WE TRUST" is inscribed to the right.
John Mercanti modeled his design for the reverse after the Great Seal of the United States. The original thirteen states are represented by thirteen stars at the top. Below them, an eagle protects a union shield. In the bird's beak is a ribbon that bears the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one). The bird holds arrows in one of its claws and an olive branch in the other. The former remind all that America will defend her values when forced to do so, while the latter indicates that the nation prefers peace. Arching over the image is the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," while under it are inscriptions that offer its weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
