First introduced in 1986, the American Silver Eagle Series is among the most popular, collectible coin series in the United States. With generally low mintages and historical designs, these coins are an advantageous purchase for collectors and investors alike. Minted in San Francisco, Philadelphia, and West Point, all Silver Eagles are manufactured within the United States.
With reeded edges and an estimated weight of 31.1 grams, each American Silver Eagle measures approximately 40.6 mm in diameter and 2.98 mm in thickness. In addition, all Silver Eagles contain 1 oz. of .999 fine silver.
The obverse of the 2000 American Silver Eagle features Adolph A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” design, originally created in 1916. The image shows a cloaked woman, known as Lady Liberty, striding toward the sunrise. The words “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” along with the date of mintage, 2000, are engraved as well.
The reverse side of the coin features the work of the U.S. Mint’s chief engraver, John Mercanti. The design, created in 1986 for the express purpose of being featured on each Silver Eagle, is modeled after the Great Seal, which was adopted as America’s coat of arms in 1782. The seal portrays an eagle holding a bundle of arrows in one claw and an olive branch in the other, symbolizing war and peace. In its mouth the bird holds a banner which reads “E Pluribus Unum” or “Out of many, One.” In addition, thirteen stars can be seen above the eagle’s head, representing the original thirteen colonies. The words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER – ONE DOLLAR” rim the outer edge of the coin.
