Stunning Beauty of the Silver Eagle
Obverse: The obverse features Lady Liberty draped in an American flag, while gracefully walking towards the sunrise. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “2022,” “IN GOD WE TRUST” and the artist’s monogram “AW.” This enduring patriotic design is borrowed from the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by acclaimed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: An eagle is depicted on the reverse with its wings lifted in preparation for landing. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” the “W” Mint mark and “ONE DOLLAR.” The image is an example of the nature themed artistry of award-winning illustrator and U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Emily Damstra.
