American Silver Eagle coins feature two of the most iconic images from American coinage history. The heraldic eagle of the United States has appeared on US coins from the US Mint since 1794, with various updates to the design over the course of more than 200 years.
The Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman is widely considered the second-best American coin design of all time. Created in 1916, it celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016 with the release of a 24-karat commemorative Walking Liberty Half Dollar gold coin in 2016.
On the obverse of the 2012-S American Silver Eagle coin is the image of Walking Liberty as created by Adolph A. Weinman. The image originally featured on the nation’s 50-cent piece from its introduction in 1916 until 1947, when it was replaced by the Benjamin Franklin design.
The reverse of all 2012-S American Silver Eagle Coins includes the modern version of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Refined in 1986 by Chief Engraver of the United States Mint (1986-2010), John Mercanti, it features the bald eagle set behind the heraldic shield of the US and holding arrows in one talon, and an olive branch in the other.
Each of these 2012 American Silver Eagle coins is a product of the San Francisco Mint. The SF Mint was originally responsible for bullion American Silver Eagle production, and in late 2011 it returned to production to provide supplemental assistance to the West Point Mint to meet the intense demand for these coins.
