On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz American Silver Eagle is the image of Walking Liberty. Originally created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, this depiction of Liberty shows her figure walking toward the setting sun with the American flag draped across her shoulders. Designed to depict America’s constant drive toward a brighter future, this image appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse of the American Silver Eagle coin includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. Used on American coinage as early as 1794, the heraldic eagle has been updated countless times in the course of American history. Former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, designed this modern heraldic eagle in 1986 specifically for use on the American Silver Eagle.
All modern American Silver Eagle Coins are produced by either the West Point Mint or San Francisco Mint. The mint facility in San Francisco was pressed back into bullion production only in 2011 to help the US Mint cope with record demand for American Silver Eagle coins.
