The obverse design of the 2006 burnished American Eagle coin is taken from a design by Adolph A. Weinman. The design, called Walking Liberty, first appeared in the early part of the 20th century on US 50-cent pieces. Walking Liberty depicts Lady Liberty moving briskly, her clothing blowing in the breeze. She’s holding an olive branch and the sun is rising in the background,
The reverse side of the coin features the US heraldic eagle. The bold bird is holding arrows and an olive branch, depicting might and mercy, and its wings are spread ready for flight. A ribbon seems to unfurl from its mouth and the words E Pluribus Unum are engraved on the waves of the cloth. Above the eagle, 13 stars are arranged to represent the 13 original colonies, and in front of the eagle, a shield rests.
The 2006-W American Eagle silver coin for collectors is burnished. This means it was struck on unique blanks that are run through a tumbler to provide burnishing. The final result is a coin that appears matte with a bright finish, enhancing all of the visual details.
