1 oz American Eagle silver coin, from 2020 minted by the United States Mint
The American Eagle was first minted in the United States in 1986, when other countries like South Africa were releasing bullion coins so successfully. In the United States, it's a favourite of both investors and collectors alike - it brings together the country's culture perfectly.
On the cross we find the design of the Walking Liberty, a goddess that represents freedom, one of the most important values in the country. The design is by Adolph Weinman, who made it more than 100 years ago for the half-dollar coins at the beginning of the century.
The goddess appears walking to what seems to be the horizon, as at the bottom left we find the sun perched on some hills. The sun's rays are shown with straight lines radiating from the circle. The female image is quite rich in detail. On her back hangs a dress, which moves to the left in the wind, with the stars of the American flag. In her left hand she holds several tree branches. The woman's dress covers her entire body, except for her hands, neck and feet, where we see her sandals.
Above her is the name of the coin, Liberty, to her right is the motto "In God we trust" and below it is the year of issue, 2020.
The eagle, one of the symbols of the country, is the focus of attention. It holds a branch with one leg and a bunch of arrows with the other. The bird appears with its wings outstretched, and above them the motto 'E.Pluribus Unum', which means 'from many, one'. The stars on the national coat of arms appear above it.
Surrounding the face is the country of issue, the metal with which the coin was minted and its face value, 1 dollar. There is also a small initial to the left of the design corresponding to the city where the coin was issued.
