The design on the coin's obverse was taken from the "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman, which initially had been used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin of the United States from 1916 to 1947. This bold design had been a public favorite, and indeed one of the most beloved designs of any United States coinage of modern times, silver or otherwise. The design was revived for the Silver Eagle decades later. The obverse is inscribed with the year of minting or issuance, the word LIBERTY, and the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST.

The reverse was designed by John Mercanti and portrays a heraldic eagle behind a shield; the Eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States; above the Eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies. The reverse is inscribed with the phrases the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ FINE SILVER ONE DOLLAR, and E PLURIBUS UNUM, as well as the mintmark, if applicable.

American eagles are a favored coin and, thus, enjoy a highly liquid market with many seekers. Additionally, the proof finish, certificate of authenticity, and mint issued presentation box all provide added value. Build your wealth in ounces with the addition of a 1 oz 1989 American Eagle Proof Silver Coin today!
