Very few symbols are as classically American as the Eagle. Its proud majesty has been the core icon representing the United States for hundreds of years. In addition to its placement on the annual American Eagle Coins, the iconography has also been featured on the American government’s seals, as well as the American quarter-dollar. Because the classically loved coin is released once yearly, it carries with it a collectible value, in addition to the value of the .999 pure silver it’s struck with.
- .999 pure silver.
- Backed by the U.S. government (face value of $1).
- Obverse depiction: Walking Liberty.
- Reverse Depiction: The classic American eagle.
The Walking Liberty design has always been another popular symbol representing the United States and its people. The design was first drafted by artist Adolph A Weinman in 1916, and it has been an incredibly popular icon since then. The design features Lady Liberty proudly strolling forward, draped in the flag and with the sun in the bottom right corner below her. This image decorates the obverse of the 2021 1 Oz American Silver Eagle Coin, along with the “In God We Trust” mantra, the word “Liberty,” and the year of its minting.
Flip the coin over to reveal the ultimate American symbol, the heraldic Eagle. Thirteen stars sit organized above it, representing the thirteen original United States colonies. The eagle clutches both arrows and an olive branch. Representing the dual concepts of war and peace, these symbols display the American belief in the balance of strength and reserve. This side of the coin also includes an inscription of the “United States of America,” as well as the face value of the coin ($1) and its weight.
The face value and silver content of this coin provide it with base value, surely. But to many collectors, the main worth of this particular piece comes from its collectibility. The 1 Oz American Silver Eagle Coin has been minted annually for 34 years. This is the 35th edition of the design in this form, making it an excellent addition, or even a start, to any collection.
