999 fine silver coins was authorized through the Liberty Coin Act of 1985, and production began in 1986. Known to many as the official bullion coin of the United States, a redesign was introduced by the US Mint in 2021. The original obverse design, based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar, has been updated with the help of modern technology.
Now a closer reflection of Weinman's original design, the obverse includes the addition of the traditional artist's mark on the coin itself. As with the obverse, the reverse of the Silver Eagle also received an update in design. Before the summer of 2021, the design was that of the heraldic eagle of the United States, which was created by the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti. This design features an American bald eagle behind a heraldic shield with arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The new reverse design, also known as "Eagle Landing, " shows an eagle approaching a landing, carrying an oak branch to add to a nest.
This new reverse design was created by one of the U. Mint's Artistic Infusion Program designers, Emily Damstra.
