The Great Seal of the United States is used to authenticate certain documents issued by the United States government. The phrase is used both for the physical seal itself, (which is in the keeping of the U.S. Secretary of State), and more generally for the design impressed upon it. The Great Seal was publicly first used in 1782.

Though the United States has never adopted any "national coat of arms", the image from the obverse of the great seal is often used informally as national arms, and is used on State documents such as passports in this capacity.
