Walking Liberty
A goddess named for and representing the concept Liberty has existed in many cultures, including classical examples dating from the Roman Empire to those representing national symbols such as the American Columbia and its Statue of Liberty, an artwork created under the name Liberty Enlightening the World, and the French Marianne. In the United States, "Liberty" often is depicted with five-pointed stars, as appear on the American flag, usually held in a raised hand. Another hand may hold a sword pointing downward.

The reverse of the coin was taken from the "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman, which originally had been used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin of the United States from 1916 to 1947. As this iconic design had been a public favorite - and one of the 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 is inscribed with the word “LIBERTY” and the phrase “IN GOD WE TRUST”. The first coin’s reverse is partly gilded and colored with yellow – the sun and blue – all the background. The second coin’s reverse is finished with black Ruthenium and Diamond dust. Thanks to high resolution color printing and glossy finish the coin is indeed a wonderful collector’s item.

The obverse of this two coins was designed by John Mercanti and portrays a heraldic eagle behind a shield. The eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States. Above the eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies. The obverse is inscribed with the phrases “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (on the banner that the eagle holds in its beak), as well as the mintmark if applicable.
