Design of the 2005-W Proof Silver Eagle NGC PF70
The obverse of this 2005-W Proof Silver Eagle NGC PF70 bears the image of Lady Liberty. She has her right hand extended out in front of her while she carries branches of laurel and oak in the left. In the lower left, the sun sets on the horizon. The word “LIBERTY” is inscribed along the rim, and the words “IN GOD WE TRUST,” the national motto, are inscribed at the right. The mintage year is included at the bottom.
Thirteen stars are set in a triangular arrangement at the top of the image. They point down at an eagle, which guards a shield. The eagle holds a ribbon that reads “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one) in its beak. America’s willingness to fight for its values is symbolized by the arrows borne in one of the eagle’s talons, while its preference for peace is symbolized by the olive branch in the other. The country in which the coin is legal tender, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” is depicted around the top half, while “1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR,” the metal content and face value, are inscribed along the bottom. The mint mark, a “W,” on the lower left indicates that the coin was struck at the West Point Mint.
