American Silver Eagle coins debuted in 1986 from the United States Mint. The official silver coin of the United States, the Silver Eagles soared to new heights with the onset of the Global Recession in 2008. From 2008 to 2015, the coins set sales records in several different years.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Originally created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, this design featured on the obverse of the nation’s 50-cent piece from 1916 to 1947. It was eventually replaced on the half-dollar by a portrait of Benjamin Franklin.
However, the Walking Liberty design remains one of the two most popular designs ever featured on an American circulation coin. It depicts the full figure of Liberty as she walks toward the setting sun, a reflection of the nation’s strive toward a constantly brighter future. She is clad in the American flag over her shoulders chasing the sun as it sets over a distant horizon.
The reverse of all American Silver Eagle coins features the modern heraldic eagle of the United States. This design first appeared on American coinage in 1794 and has been updated constantly over the course of American coining history. This particular design comes from John Mercanti, who modernized the image in 1986 for the Silver Eagles. Mercanti is a former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint who retired in 2010.
