The Silver American Eagle coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint from 1986 1992. From 1993 2000 the coins were minted in the Philadelphia Mint. In 2001 the Silver Eagle production moved to West Point where the minting is still done today. Weinman designed the obverse known as The Walking Liberty and John Mercanti designed the reverse.
