PCGS checks each and every coin for authenticity before grading begins. This coin received the grade of PR69, which is just under the highest grade available. Visually, this coin is stunning. It possesses an incredible level of contrast between the background and the raised portions of the design which can actually give it a black and white appearance from some angles. This is why it received the Deep Cameo or DCAM designation.

1996 Philadelphia Proof Silver Eagle Design

The 1996 proof Silver Eagle shows one of America’s all-time favorite designs on the front, Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty. This design was originally used for a half dollar, but it was so popular that the Mint decided to resurrect it for the Silver Eagle. The inscriptions on the front of the coin read “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “1996.” Liberty is shown with the stars and stripes of our flag flowing around her while she walks with her arm stretched before her.

The reverse of this coin was designed later, it was created just for the Silver Eagle. A heraldic bald eagle is shown with a banner in its beak which reads “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The other inscriptions read “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
