The Silver Eagle is a genuine legal tender silver proof coin struck by the United States Mint. It has been made each year since 1986 in a limited edition and is now one of the world's most popular silver proof coins. The obverse of the 2017 Silver Eagle Dollar features Adolph A. Weinman's famous "Walking Liberty" design that first appeared on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916-1947. This is one of the most beautiful coin designs of all time, showing Lady Liberty striding forwards in a flowing gown and wrapped by the American flag. The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle, together with the U.S. Government's guarantee that the coin contains "1 Oz. Fine Silver" and the face value of "One Dollar." It is legal tender.
