Featuring the Highly Acclaimed Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The obverse of Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty half dollar continues to serve as the Silver Eagle's obverse design. Liberty walks to the left with branches of laurel and oak in her left arm as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman was a central figure in America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. His major contributions were the Walking Liberty half dollar and the Mercury dime. He also sculpted several works that can be seen to this day in major American cities.
Reverse: The Great Seal of the United States was John Mercanti's model for the reverse design. It consists of two parts, an eagle protecting a union shield and thirteen stars, which represent the original states. They are encircled by rim inscriptions, which read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." Over the course of his three and a half plus decades with the US Mint, John Mercanti designed more medals and coins than anyone else in his history. He also spent part of his tenure as the institution's Chief Engraver.
