Striking Heraldic Eagle Design by John Mercanti

Obverse: Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design graces the obverse. Draped in the American flag, Liberty extends her right hand as if to greet the morning sun while carrying laurel and oak branches in her left arm. She is joined by inscriptions of her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman designed the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, two of the best known coins in American history. In addition to these and other numismatic contributions, Weinman also created numerous sculptures.

Reverse: The reverse bears a heraldic eagle design that John Mercanti modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle guards a union shield while holding arrows and an olive branch under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. The design is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent almost four decades with the US Mint, including time as the institution's twelfth Chief Engraver. Over the course of his career, he became the most prolific designer of coins and medals in American history.
