2022 American Eagles in Silver and Gold
As the official coins of the United States, the Silver and Gold American Eagles remain among the most popular coins in the world. First introduced in 1986, the Eagles program has remained a prominent coin series throughout its long history. Great for investments or collections, Silver and Gold Eagles are perfect for anyone looking to own one of the most iconic coins in American history.
2022 Silver Eagles
2022 Silver Eagle coins consist of 1 Troy oz of .999 fine Silver with a denomination of $1.00 USD, backed by the United States Government. The U.S. Mint utilizes designs featuring Lady Liberty and the American Bald Eagle on the obverse and reverse of the coin, respectively. The designs remained the same until mid-year 2021 – the new designs will now be featured on all Silver Eagles released from the mint.
2022 Silver Eagles Design Over the Years
The original Silver Eagle obverse design features timeless artwork by Adolph Weinman’s famous Walking Liberty. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design was originally used from 1916 to 1947. The original reverse displayed an eagle behind a shield holding an olive branch and arrows in its talons. The design came during a time when beauty in American coinage was lacking and Weinman’s design was an instant success.
To mark the new era of Silver Eagles, a new reverse design appeared in mid-2021 after 35 successful years of the American Eagle coin series. United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Artist Designer Emily Damstra created the design, which was then sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Michael Gaudioso. The obverse design remains the same with updated details. The reverse design now features a single Bald Eagle coming in for a landing, carrying an oak branch in its talons.
Due to the Silver Eagle being the official Silver bullion coin of the United States, it holds high recognition and liquidity. 2022 Silver American Eagles are great additions to any coin collection due to their guaranteed Silver content and global appreciation.
2022 Gold Eagles
Consisting of .9167 fine Gold, the 2022 Gold American Eagle is among the world’s most popular Gold coins. Since its initial release in 1986, the value of Gold Eagles has been known around the world as perfect staples for any investment portfolio or collection focused on iconic world coins. Throughout the history of the Gold Eagles program, the designs remained the same until mid-year 2021. The 2022 Gold Eagles reflect the newest designs to create a modern feel for this classic American coin.
The History behind the 2022 Gold Eagles Design
The original Gold Eagle obverse features an image of Lady Liberty based off Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design created in 1907. The image was used on the Gold Double Eagles from 1907-1933 depicting Liberty, surrounded by rays of sunshine, walking with a torch held in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The reverse displayed a family of American Bald Eagles, exclusive to the American Gold Eagle series.
The 2022 Gold Eagles feature an updated obverse design to include details from the original bronze cast. The reverse features a bold, detailed image of an American Bald Eagle – providing a clear depiction of the strength and dependability of the eagle. The design was created by U.S. Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris and sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon.
Due to the 2022 Gold Eagles iconic designs and guaranteed Gold content, they are perfect for any investor or collector interested in adding a piece of American history to their collections.
