A premier coin dealer, the experts at Boston Bullion, know Silver Eagle Coins. This article will highlight the history, as well as a brief overview of one of 2019’s newest editions.
American sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman, is honored with the designing of “Walking Liberty.” The imagery of Liberty, a depiction of a Roman Goddess descending from ancient Roman coins, adorned the United States half-dollar from 1916-1947. However, Weinman added his own twist adorning the full-length figure in the American flag. Liberty is also carrying branches of laurel and oak, symbolic of military and civil glory.
On the reverse, United States Mint sculptor and engraver, John Mercanti designed with great detail the heraldic Eagle. Perched high upon a mountain top, wings unfolded, the Eagle is fearless and powerful.
Following 1947 the silver coin series disappeared. It was not until 1986 that the original design made a triumphant return and has held fast ever since. Unlike most bullion coins, the silver eagle coin is non-reportable. Thus a preferred choice by collectors for assured privacy, safety, and security. Furthermore, it is the only silver bullion coin that has its weight and silver content guaranteed by the U.S. government. These one-ounce coins are 99.9% fine silver and transformed by the artisans of the United States Mint into Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) coins of quality and detail.
2019 Silver Eagle coins feature details gilded in 24 karat gold. The result of hours of expertise is a lustrously emphasized detailed coin. Highlighting both Weinman’s and Mercanti’s designs, 24 karat gold lines both sides of the coin. This, however, is not the only addition to the newest coin.
Furthering the radiance of the 2019 Silver Eagle coin, a layer of jet-black ruthenium crowns the coin. Ruthenium is a transition metal from the platinum family of precious metals. Similarly, ruthenium is becoming one of the hottest trends in high-end jewelry. The dark sheen perfectly complements the gold detailing.
