The SilverTowne US Eagle Replica reflects the design features of both the obverse and reverse of the American Silver Eagle coin, the official silver bullion product of the United States. While the US Mint has issued these coins since 1986, the SilverTowne series is decidedly younger. However, SilverTowne releases this design each year on a silver round, updating the year of issue to reflect the current year.
Adolph A. Weinman was a prolific designer and artist in the early 20th century. He studied under Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the man who created America’s greatest coin design ever for the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin. Weinman’s Walking Liberty not only appeared on the half-dollar coin, but his Winged Liberty appeared on the US dime as well and famously became known as the Mercury Dime.
On the obverse of the 2017 5 oz SilverTowne US Eagle Replica Silver Round you’ll find Weinman’s design of Walking Liberty. She is featured walking toward the setting sun with her right hand outstretched, the American flag draped over her shoulders, and olive branches and oak laurels in her left hand. She is symbolic of America’s drive toward a brighter future.
The reverse of all the SilverTowne US Eagle Replica Rounds offers a different take on John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle depiction modernized for the Silver Eagles. It features the bald eagle behind the nation’s heraldic shield, with an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. Engravings above read “Silver Bullion Round” and the weight, purity, and metal content included below.
