The silver eagle is a one-ounce bullion coin with a face value of one dollar. The obverse has Adolph A. Weinman’s Liberty Walking design used on the half dollar coins from 1916 through 1947. His initials are on the hem of the gown. The reverse design is a rendition of a heraldic eagle by John Mercanti.
Since 2001, the U.S. Mint’s West Point facility has been the exclusive producer of all silver eagles—regular strikes (without mintmarks) and Proofs (with mintmarks). The U.S. Mint does not release bullion mintage data on a regular basis; the numbers below are the most recent official mintages.
