American Silver Eagle bullion coins have been struck every year during the 30-year history of the coin program. Also available in proof and burnished versions, the former was not struck in 2009 and the latter was only recently introduced in 2006 on the 20th anniversary of the coin programs introduction.
On the obverse of each American Silver Eagle coin youll find the historic Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. Originally featured on the nations half-dollar coin, it depicts Americas desire to find a brighter future by showing Lady Liberty walking toward the setting sun draped in the American flag.
US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti designed the heraldic eagle that graces the coins reverse face. Mercantis first design in the post of Chief Engraver was the heraldic eagle on the American Silver Eagle program. He held the post from 1986 to 2010 when he retired, and it remains vacant to this day.
