Gorgeous Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: The obverse depicts Lady Liberty draped in an American flag as she strolls towards the sunrise. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY,” “2023,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and the monogram style initials “AW,” which credit renowned early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman with the design, which first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916.
Reverse: An eagle is portrayed on the reverse clutching a branch of oak to add to its nest, with its wings uplifted in preparation for landing. Inscribed “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER” and “ONE DOLLAR.” This Type-2 eagle landing graphic was created by acclaimed illustrator Emily Damstra, a U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program member since 2014.
