Known officially as the Feast of Saint Patrick, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated each year on March 17th. This is the traditional death date citied for Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. Though St. Patrick died in 461, the feast was not made an official Christian celebration until the early 17th century.
Today, St. Patrick’s Day is observed by the Catholic Church, the Church of Ireland, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. While there are many folktales surrounding St. Patrick and Ireland, the celebration is officially intended to mark the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
Obverse designs on the 2022 1 oz American Silver Eagle feature the historic Walking Liberty design. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, this visual depicts Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon draped in the American flag. Her figure is shown walking with her right hand outstretched and her left carrying branches of oak and laurel.
Reverse visuals on the 2022 1 oz Silver Eagle include the American bald eagle in flight. This design debuted on the coins in 2021 and was created by Emily Damstra the previous year. It shows a bald eagle swooping into view with a large oak branch in its talons.
These 2022 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins are available to purchase in St. Patrick’s Day-themed clamshell cards. The card comes with a green design element that includes a Leprechaun hat and a three-leaf clover within the Happy St. Patrick’s Day greeting.
