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 design on the coin's reverse depicts the Lady Liberty and 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 year of minting or issuance, the word “Liberty” and the phrase “In God We Trust”. The coin is completely plated in Black Ruthenium and partially plated in Gold 24kt.

The obverse 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).
