The 2023 coin's obverse features the classic full-length figure of Liberty in stride created by Adolph A. Weinman, which was updated in 2021. The Silver Eagles now include more of Weinman's original details due to technological advancements in the design and minting processes.
In 2021, the reverse of the Silver Eagle coin was completely redesigned. It features a single eagle about to land while carrying an oak branch in its talons. It was engraved by acclaimed medallic artist Michael Gaudioso, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. (2023-W Proof Silver Eagles certified with the NGC Michael Gaudioso Signature Label will be available through select retailers.)
