The design, on the silver eagle, is usually connected to 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 other works are still scattered throughout the US since they represent tons of US history. Another familiar design of his is the Mercury dime, which is mainly traded nowadays for its silver content. 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. On the back of the silver eagle, the US Coat of Arms is featured with, of course, an eagle.
Your 2005 American Silver Eagle MS69 is guaranteed to be .999 silver and comes in an official NGC plastic holder. Your coin was awarded the grade of mint-state 69; mint-state 70 is the highest grade a BU coin can earn. 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 coin's purity and authenticity is also marked on the reverse for extra assurance. 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. "In God We Trust," is written right next to her as a reminder and the coin's date of mintage is beneath her delicate footsteps. Add a little piece of US history to your silver coin collection and invest in the certified silver eagles!
