design of the Silver American Eagle is very different from that of the Gold
American Eagle. The obverse of the coin features the "Walking Libery" design by
Adolph A. Weinman. The same design that was used from 1916 to 1947 for the
Walking Liberty Half Dollar. This design
has been a long time favorite in the history of United States coinage so its inclusion
in the Silver American Eagle was a logical decision. The obverse also includes
the year of minting, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST.
reverse of the coin is a bald eagle designed by John Mercanti. The eagle is
behind a shield with an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. Directly
above the bald eagle are 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies of the
United States. The reverse includes the mintmark, weight, and nominal face
value of the coin.
