Like the gold American Eagle, the design for the silver American Eagle was borrowed from an older American coin. The image of “Walking Liberty,” located on the front of the silver American Eagle, first debuted in 1916 on the half-dollar coin designed by Adolph Weinman. Renowned for their beauty, Walking Liberty Half-Dollars are widely considered one of the United States’ most attractive silver coins. The reverse (back), designed by John Mercanti, depicts a heraldic eagle with shield carrying an olive branch and arrows in its talons. An inverse pyramid of thirteen stars representing the thirteen original colonies floats above its head. The words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ‘ 1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR ‘” encircle the eagle.
