The 1991 Silver Eagle Design

The 6th edition of the American Silver Eagle coins repeats the successful design that made them one of the most popular coins in the history of the United States Mint. The iconic symbols showcased on both sides of the coin represent American patriotism and pride: the Walking Liberty and the heraldic eagle.

Silver Eagle Obverse Design: The Walking Liberty

Initially designed to be engraved on the half-dollar coins, the Walking Liberty illustrates the nation in a feminine figure, Lady Liberty. In the image Adolph A. Weinman created in 1917, she walks towards the sun rays, carrying branches of laurel and oak, as a sign of abundance while the American flag rests on her shoulder. Her right arm is open, as in a welcome sign, offering generosity and opportunities for those looking for a chance in the country.

Behind Lady Liberty, on the upper rim, we read “LIBERTY”. On the bottom, the year of issuance and beside her, “IN GOD WE TRUST”.


Silver Eagle Reverse Design: The Heraldic Eagle

The shielded eagle depiction is a creation of John Mercanti, the US Mint Chief Engraver at that time. In the image, the eagle appears behind the national shield, with open wings. The eagle carries in its beak a banner with the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and its talons carry arrows and branches of olive. Above the eagle, 13 five-pointed stars form a triangular shape, representing the Thirteen Colonies from 1776.

The inscription engraved on this side represents information related to the coin. They say: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”  on the top, “1 OZ FINE SILVER” and the face value “ONE DOLLAR”.

The Silver Eagle Mintage

The American Silver Eagle program dates back to 1986, and came to life through the Liberty Coin Act, which authorized the program’s law. The first strikes of the coin were so successful that for some time, the US Mint had to face pent-up demand.

1991 was its 6th year of large-scale production and there was still a high demand for these Silver Eagle coins, which accounted for the third consecutive year of record breaking production. The bullion version of the coin had its peak at 7,191,066 units struck, while the Proof American Silver Eagle only reached 500,000 units.
