Spectacular Silver Eagle Imagery
Obverse: The obverse illustrates Lady Liberty gracefully strolling towards a dawning sun while draped in an American flag, with the word "LIBERTY" curving above. Additional inscriptions include "2016" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This breathtaking rendition of Liberty first appeared on U.S. coinage exactly 100 years earlier, on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The design is the work of renowned medallic sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: Centered on the reverse is a heraldic eagle grasping an olive branch and arrows, designed by John Mercanti, the 12th U.S. Mint Chief Engraver. The heraldic eagle defines the Type-1 Silver Eagle, which was issued from 1986 until mid-2021. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "W" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
