A History of the 1 oz. Silver Eagle Coin

Silver American Eagle Coins were first minted in late 1986, having first been authorized by an amendment in the Liberty Coin Act. Signed by President Ronald Reagan, this amendment authorized the U.S. Mint to mint and issue one-dollar silver bullion coins. It outlined everything from design and diameter, to silver sourcing and production volume.

Silver Eagles Display Artwork Rooted in Our Nation's History

The Obverse Silver Eagle Design: Walking Liberty
Genuine American iconography demands a rare level of respect. That’s the case with the beautiful “Walking Liberty” design initially crafted for the U.S. Half-Dollar of 1916-1947. The Silver American Eagle proudly bears that same design on its front as a respectful acknowledgment to our country’s rich history.

“Walking Liberty,” designed by Adolph A. Weinman, is so remarkable that one famed art historian described its half-dollar as “one of the greatest coins of the United States — if not of the world.”

The design also serves as a noble reminder of the financial freedom granted to citizens today. It’s a classic that, partnered with the precious metal content of this silver coin, distinguishes itself as a modern marvel.

The Reverse Silver Eagle Design: Heraldic Eagle
The image on the back of the 1 oz. Silver American Eagle was designed by John Mercanti. It displays a heraldic eagle with an olive brand in one talon and arrows in the other, the great seal of the United States, alongside the Latin phrase "E Pluribus Unum" (“Out of many, one”), a phrase that served as our national motto until 1956. Thirteen stars hover above the eagle's head, symbolizing the 13 original American colonies.
