A Classic Design
The design on the obverse is an adaptation of the
Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, which was originally used on the
U.S. half dollar from 1916 to 1947. As this iconic design had been a
public favorite (and indeed, one most beloved designs of any United
States coinage of modern times, silver or otherwise) it was revived for
the Silver Eagle decades later. The reverse portrays a heraldic eagle
designed by John Mercanti.
