Patriotic Beauty of the American Silver Eagle
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of Lady Liberty wrapped in an American flag designed by renowned early 20th-century medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman. The timeless image first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “2023” and the artist’s “AW” monogram.
Reverse: An eagle is illustrated preparing to land on the reverse. Inscribed “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “ONE DOLLAR,” the “W” Mint mark, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The Type-2 eagle landing design was created by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Emily Damstra.
