Your 2003 American Silver Eagle weighs one troy ounce of pure .999 silver and is packaged in individual coin flips. Your coin exhibits a sheen finish that extends above and beyond the usual standards for the usual brilliant uncirculated condition. Lady Liberty, a familiar face from the Walking Liberty half dollars that were in circulation from 1916-1947. Adolph A. Weinman, a German American sculptor, was chosen to create the original Walking Liberty design. Weinman's other famous works are sprinkled throughout the US; one being the Mercury dime that is now sought after for its silver content. To honor Weinman's masterpiece and revive the popular Walking Liberty design, the US Mint has assigned every American Silver Eagle with the Lady Liberty we all know and love. Alongside the Lady, the infamous phrase, "In God We Trust," is inscribed as a reminder. "Liberty," is etched in a large font above Lady Liberty's covered head. The coin's date of mintage, "2003," is included at the bottom of the obverse. The reverse contains an illustration of the US Coat of Arms, which is an eagle covered by a shield. The eagle holds, with its left talon, 13 arrows in honor of the original 13 colonies. The right talon is clenching an olive branch to represent peace. The reverse also bears the coin's purity and weight for extra assurance.
