American Palladium Eagle Design
The designs featured on the Palladium Eagle Series are from the famous American artist, Adolph A. Weinman, designer of the "Mercury" dime and the "Walking Liberty" half dollar.
The obverse of the series uses the breathtaking Winged Liberty Head from the "Mercury" dime. A left-facing Goddess Liberty is depicted wearing a winged "Freedom Cap." The wings are a blatant reminder that the United States was founded with "freedom of thought" as a guiding principle.
The reverse design is similar in many ways to the Walking Liberty half dollar. It features the Bald Eagle as it pulls a laurel branch out of the rocks on a mountaintop. The image first appeared on the reverse of the 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) medal.
