Burnished coins in the American Eagle series receive special treatment during the coining process. Silver blanks are polished in a tumbler with steel balls as the burnishing medium, which provides a unique luster to the coins visibility. The blanks are hand-picked from the drum, and hand loaded into the coining press. Each one is hand-picked from the press after coining as well, all done with a gloved hand.
The obverse of the 2017-W 1 oz Burnished American Silver Eagle Coins features Walking Liberty from Adolph A. Weinman. One of Americas greatest coin designers, Weinman not only created Walking Liberty for the half-dollar coin (1916-1947), he also designed the Mercury Dime.
On the reverse of all American Silver Eagle coins is the image of the heraldic eagle of the US. This design has been around since 1794, and this is the latest refinement of the image which was completed by John Mercanti, former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint until 2010.
