While the U.S. Mint issues a variety of coins each year, the American Silver Eagle is certainly one of the most popular. In recent years, demand has reached record levels. Like all the other coins of this series since 1986, it’s made of .999 fine silver and weighs 1 Troy oz. This makes it an ideal choice for collecting or stacking.
The design on the obverse is the work of Adolph A. Weinman. Most collectors know this one by its name, Walking Liberty. It was first used in 1916 and originally appeared on the half dollar.
The reverse displays a design created by John Mercanti. This design features a high level of detail. It shows a heraldic bald eagle with a banner in its beak. Above its head, there are 13 stars arranged in a triangular pattern.
