Iconic Seated Liberty Design by Christian Gobrecht
The obverse features Christian Gobrecht's famous Seated Liberty design. Liberty wears a flowing dress as she holds a Liberty pole topped by a Phrygian cap in her left hand and balances a union shield with her left. Thirteen stars, symbols of the original states, arc over her on the rim, while "1854" is inscribed between arrowheads at the bottom.
On the reverse, an eagle clutches arrows, symbols of America's willingness to defend herself, in one talon and an olive branch, which indicates a preference for peace, in the other while guarding a union shield. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed on the top half of the rim, while "1 TROY OZ." and ".999 FINE SILVER" are inscribed at the bottom.
