Elegant Silver Eagle Design

Obverse: On the obverse, Lady Liberty is portrayed walking towards the rising sun while draped in an American flag. She carries long branches of oak and laurel, which symbolize endurance, integrity and victory. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “2008.” The patriotic image is borrowed from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by acclaimed early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman in 1916.  

Reverse: The reverse features an eagle grasping arrows and an olive branch. Recognized as the primary identifying characteristic of the Type-1 style, the heraldic eagle image appeared on all Silver Eagle coins issued from 1986 until mid-2021. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “ONE DOLLAR,” the West Point Mint mark “W” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The image was created by sculptor John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint’s 12th Chief Engraver.
