Adolph A. Weinman | Smithsonian American Art Museum

Sculptor-medalist Adolph Weinman, whose classic Walking Liberty design graces the obverse of the American Silver Eagle coins.

It was in 1986 that the American Silver Eagle, along with its gold equivalent, became the official bullion coinage of the United States. Similar to the gold program, the United States Mint revived an iconic design from American numismatic history to present on the obverse of the Silver Eagle.

Adolph A. Weinman, an apprentice of the renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was selected in 1915 to be among a small group of artist who would redesign Americas silver coins. Weinman's portrayal of Lady Liberty striding confidently westward toward the setting sun was inspirational. It depicted the nation's desire for expansion and fearless approach to an unknown future, for it was crafted during the First World War. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar was produced by the U.S. Mint from 1916 to 1947.

Today, the image is featured on the obverse of all American Silver Eagle coins. Upon it, Liberty strides toward the setting sun with her shoulders draped with the American flag. The reverse features US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti's heraldic eagle. Inspired by the Great Seal of the United States, as well as previous heraldic eagles upon American coins, the reverse features 13 stars representing the original colonies, and a bald eagle behind the heraldic shield of America.
