Why add this flawless 20th Anniversary 2006-W American Silver Eagle Proof coin to your collection?
The American Silver Eagle series was launched by the U.S. Mint in 1986. In celebration of the series' 20th Anniversary in 2006, the Mint issued a limited mintage set which included three distinct Silver Eagle coins: a traditional proof, a reverse proof, and the satin-like burnished variety.
Beautifully Detailed Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: On the obverse, "LIBERTY" curves above a timeless interpretation of Lady Liberty. The lovely Ms. Liberty is enveloped in an American flag, as she strolls towards the rising sun while cradling a bouquet of oak and laurel branches. Additional inscriptions include "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2006." The image is borrowed from the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar created by Adolph A. Weinman, an award-winning early 20th century American sculptor.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle design by John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint's 12th Chief Engraver. Featuring an eagle clutching a bundle of arrows and an olive branch, the image represents the Type-1 style Silver Eagle, which was issued from 1986 until mid-2021. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "W" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Exceptional Proof 70 Ultra Cameo
