American Silver Eagle coins were introduced in 1986 by the United States Mint to serve as the official silver bullion product of the federal government. Silver stores were released from the Defense National Stockpile to strike the coins in an effort to raise additional funds for the federal government.
The Treasury and United States Mint chose Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty design from 1916 to feature on the obverse face of the coin. In the design, Liberty is featured striding toward the setting sun with the American flag draped over her shoulders. The imagery is representative of the nation's constant march toward a brighter future.
John Mercanti, Chief Engraver of the US Mint, created the heraldic eagle image used on the reverse. A bald eagle is set behind a heraldic shield in the design, with a 3-point set of 13 stars above its head representing America's original colonies. Mercanti's image was created specifically for this coin program.
For this special 30th anniversary product, you receive a 2 oz. silver bar with an inset space for your 2016 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin. You can mount the American Silver Eagle within the face of the bar, creating a stunning combination of a high-value bullion coin and a silver bar.
