Walking Liberty has featured on the obverse of the American Silver Eagle coin since 1986 when it debuted from the United States Mint. Adolph A. Weinman is one of Americas most accomplished coin designers, creating Walking Liberty for the nations 50-cent piece in 1916 as well as the famed Mercury Dime (Winged Liberty) created in the same year for the 10-cent coin.
The reverse of the American Silver Eagle Coin features the oldest coin design on an American-issued coin. The heraldic eagle first appeared on coins from the original Philadelphia Mint in 1794, the first commissioned coins from the young United States Mint and its federal government. In this modern depiction, US Mint Engraver (later Chief Engraver) John Mercanti developed the American bald eagle image as it sits behind the national shield. 13 stars over its head represent the original colonies, while it also clutches the traditional arrows of war and olive branch of peace.
