This roll of twenty 1 Oz silver eagle coins represents the best of American craftsmanship, bearing Walking Liberty, the work of Adolph A Weinman on its obverse side, and a Heraldic Eagle bearing a shield beneath thirteen 5 pointed stars. First minted in the San Francisco Mint, these coins don’t bear a mint mark, and have been minted in three American mints throughout their run. Secretary James A Baker III attended the minting of the first coin, and thus the creation of the first of the official United States official silver coins.
German born Adolph A Weinman was 14 when he first came to America, and is renowned for his work on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, the design of which is replicated here on the obverse side of the coin. Throughout his career he crafted the Mercury dime, as well as numerous Armed Services medals.
