1 Oz Silver Art Medallions 2011-2020 Based on Adolph A. Weinman’s Famous Walking Liberty Half Dollar Design
Walking Liberty (obverse) – Between 1916 and 1947 the United States minted what is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful coin designs ever. Originally, the Walking Liberty half dollar silver coin design was created by Adolph A. Weinman, who was also the designer of the popular Mercury Dime. The current “American Silver Eagles” have a similar design on the obverse. These silver art medallions are much larger and contain almost three times as much silver as the Walking Liberty half dollar, which only contains 0.357 ounces of silver after factoring out the copper (which is 10% of its overall weight)
Perched Eagle (reverse) – The perched eagle is a popular rendition placed on numerous United States Mint coins, beginning in 1795 and becoming more prevalent in the mid-1800’s. Each silver art medallion is branded in the Money Metals Exchange name and stamped with its guaranteed weight of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. These privately minted art medallions are not legal tender and differ in numerous ways from any government-minted 1 oz coin. And they are clearly marked with the Money Metals Exchange brand to further ensure there is no confusion with any coin.
