2020 / Silver American Eagle
The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States. The obverse features Walking Liberty as she strides toward the setting sun, one hand outstretched as she walks toward an ever-brighter future. In her left hand she holds oak branches denoting Americas civic successes, while the American flag is draped over her shoulders.
The reverse of all American Silver Eagles features the heraldic eagle of the United States. First designed and used on American coinage in 1794, this image is a refined 20th century design by former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti. Thirteen stars above its head honor the original colonies, while the olive branch of peace and arrows of war are clutched in its talons.
It was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. It is struck only in the one-troy ounce size, which has a nominal face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.
