Approved by the 1985 Liberty Coin Act, the United States Mint debuted the American Silver Eagle coin in 1986. A beloved coin in the hearts of Americans, the 1-ounce Silver Eagle is recognized as the United States’ official silver bullion coin, produced in .999 pure silver. For added resilience, the 99.93 percent silver is reinforced with 0.07 percent copper. Legal tender for all public and private debts, the face value of the American Silver Eagle is $1. While the United States Mint does not directly sell the American Silver Eagle to the public, they do certify its purity, weight, and content, which is also guaranteed by the U.S. Government. The Silver Eagle is a permitted source of investment funding for an Individual Retirement Account.
Originally featured on the 1916-1947 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the “Walking Liberty” design of sculptor Adolph A. Weinman is depicted on the American Silver Eagle’s obverse. The inspiring scene pictures Lady Liberty reaching out her right arm in a graceful motion that parallels the flowing American flag that envelopes her. Detailed stars and stripes illustrate the fluidity of the flags forward motion. She strides toward the rising sun, proudly holding laurel and oak branches in her left arm to symbolize the United States’ civil and military glory. The word “Liberty” prominently displays itself across the curved path of the coins arch. “In God We Trust” occupies the smooth background space behind Lady Liberty, and the mint year marks the bottom of the coin’s obverse display.
The silver bullion coin’s reverse portrays the magnificent American eagle, wings fully extended, as he nobly presents his shielded chest. In his right talon, he holds an olive branch, the symbol of peace, and in his left, he carries a bundle of arrows. The original thirteen colonies are depicted in an inverted triangle formation of stars above the heraldic eagle. In his beak, the eagle holds a banner that extends outward to reveal the phrase: “E Pluribus Unum.” The design, sculpted by American engraver John M. Mercanti, is surrounded by bold lettering announcing “United States of America” across the top and “1 Oz. Fine Silver ~ One Dollar” below. While production of the Silver Eagle has occurred at three different mints — Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, the West Point Mint — the reverse of the 2015 American Silver Eagle is marked with a small “W” to indicate its striking at the United States’ West Point Mint facility.
