New and Classic Silver Eagle Designs Together
Obverse: The obverse of both coins is the same. This side shows the Walking Liberty design, which was originally created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. Liberty is shown in stride as she carries a bundle of oak and laurel branches. If you’re looking for the date, it’s just below Liberty’s feet. Adolph Weinman’s artist initials “AW” are including in the series for the first time on the Type 2 Silver Eagle’s obverse.
Reverse: The Type 1 reverse shows a heraldic bald eagle. This is the design that has been used for the reverse in this series since the beginning until mid-2021. Debuting in mid-2021, the Type 2 reverse shows an eagle landing as it returns with an oak branch in its talons.
