The American Silver Eagle coin entered the 1990s with rising mintage figures. As demand was rising between 1989 and 1991, the price of silver was dropping and helped fuel growing mintage figures in the series.

On the obverse side of 1990 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins is Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, this image of Liberty appeared on the nation’s half-dollar coin from 1916 to 1947. The design was highly regarded during its time and is remembered today as one of the two finest American coin designs of the 20th century.
The reverse face of 1990 American Silver Eagle coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design was first crafted in 1794 by Robert Scot, the first Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. This depiction comes from John Mercanti and was modernized in 1986 for use on the American Silver Eagle.
