The first American Silver Eagle releases came in 1986, making 2016 the 30th anniversary of the coins. Today, American Silver Eagle coins are available in bullion, proof, and burnished versions, with the bullion version the most popular single product in the world.
2016 isn’t just the 30th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle, but is also the 100th anniversary of its obverse design: Walking Liberty. On the obverse of the 2016 American Silver Eagle you’ll find the Walking Liberty design, created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman for use on the nation’s half-dollar coin.
The reverse of the 2016 American Silver Eagle features the heraldic eagle of the United States. Refined in 1986 by Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, it features the American bald eagle behind the heraldic shield of the country. 13 stars above its head pay homage to the founding colonies of America.
All American Silver Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. Bullion coins are struck primarily at the West Point Mint, with supplemental striking at the San Francisco Mint to meet the intense demand for these coins.
