For the 35th anniversary, the US Mint has announced a redesign of the the American Gold and Silver Eagles. This was first debuted with the 2021 Type 2 coin and is continued with the 2023 coin. The obverse side of the 2023 American Silver Eagle Type 2 Coin features the Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. This design was first developed in 1916. The image shows Liberty in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon. Beneath the “TR” in the inscription of “In God We Trust” is where you will find Weinman’s signature mark consisting of his “AW” initials.
The new reverse design shows a bald eagle flying now in a more life like design. The beautiful wings are visible with incredible detail and stunning accuracy, as the eagle holds a large oak branch in its talons, which is the national tree of the united states. In addition, the new coin contains enhanced security features, liked reeded edges. The eagle is surrounded by inscriptions including the country, weight, purity, denomination, and the US motto “E Pluribus Unum”.
