  • Description:

    The Walking Liberty is one of the most known figures of US currency and is featured on the obverse of every American Silver Eagle. Lady Liberty was first designed for the half dollar in 1916-1947 but since it received such acclaim, the US Mint decided to resurrect the design for their first silver bullion coin collection. Adolph A. Weinman, an American sculptor who was born in Germany, was chosen to design the obverse for the Walking Liberty half-dollar. What he didn't know was how popular his design would remain 40 years later. Weinman's take on Lady Liberty resembles a Grecian god, who is wrapped in a light-weight robe and is delicately fluttering in the wind to enhance her femininity.

    Your 1988 American Silver Eagle weighs approximately one troy ounce of pure silver and comes packaged in individual coin flips for protection during shipment. Your coin displays a delicate sheen that is standard for excellently minted brilliant uncirculated coins.

    -Obverse: The obverse portrays a tall Lady Liberty, carrying an armful of branches as her other arm is gracefully extended. The sun rises in the background to offer hope with a new day. The obverse is also stamped with the words, "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the year of mintage.
    -Reverse: The reverse contains the US seal, which is of a large eagle with several different representations. Both of the eagle's talons are holding onto something; the left contains olive branches to represent peach and the other talon is holding arrows to represent warrior. The eagle is covered by a huge shield that indicates that the US will protect its power and "E Pluribus Unum" is written across the eagle's outstretched wings. The coin's weight and purity is also stamped on the reverse for authentication purposes.
