When the very first US Mint was established, so was the Mint Act. The Mint Act was a bill that passed, stating the requirements for the US currency that was to be minted. One of the criteria was that every piece of currency should display an emblematic symbol of liberty. Over the years, many artists have had their shot at designing the perfect Lady Liberty but Adolph Weinman's depiction has remained the country's favorite. The design that coin collectors and history aficionados connect to this image is usually of the Walking liberty half-dollar that was in circulation from 1916-1947. This iconic image's credit goes to Adolph A. Weinman, an American sculptor born in Germany. Weinman's liberty resembles a Grecian goddess, a tall and thin figure clothed in a loose-fitted robe. She has been used as a symbol of hope and bravery for many years and still is the main symbol of freedom.
Your 1995 American Silver Eagle Roll is the perfect thing to have on hand when the need for an easy collectible gift arrises. You can give a few away, keep a few for yourself, and can take comfort in knowing you spent less than you would have buying these coins individually. There are 20 brilliant uncirculated coins, to a roll, and each weighs one troy ounce. The reverse design includes the patriotic US Coat of Arms, which consists of a lone eagle with its wings open and ready to fly. Each talon is holding something symbolic; the right is holding olive branches and the other is holding arrows. The Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse of every American Silver Eagle. The American flag is discreetly draped over her boney shoulders, as one arm holds a bundle of branches, the other is outstretched and inviting. In a large font, above her covered head, is the word, "Liberty." The rising sun is coming up slowly behind her to offer hope with a new day.
