1 oz Sunshine Mint Walking Liberty Silver Rounds are an excellent way to invest in pure silver because their premium above the silver spot price is less than that of legal tender coins.
One of the world’s most popular designs now available at bullion round pricing!
The design on the coin’s obverse 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 bold design had been a public favourite, and indeed one of the most beloved designs of any United States coinage of modern times, silver or otherwise. The design was revived for the Silver Eagle decades later, and is now available from Sunshine Minting. The obverse is inscribed with the SMI logo, the word LIBERTY, and the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST.
The reverse mimics the design 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 reverse is inscribed with the phrases UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and E PLURIBUS UNUM, as well as the Sunshine Mint’s mintmark security feature. The middle of the SMI “Mint Mark SI” security feature is not visible to the naked eye, although when viewed through the unique decoding lens, the security feature becomes visible.
