2010-W 1 oz. Proof Silver Eagle in NGC PF69 UC
This 2010-W Proof Silver Eagle is a beautiful coin that makes for an excellent addition to any collection. Struck at West Point, this piece bears the same iconic design as on the American government’s bullion coin, but it has a proof finish that serves to accentuate the details. Whether for someone who stacks American Silver Eagles and would like a near-perfect proof version of the coin or someone who simply wants a stand-alone version of an American icon, this coin presents a fantastic option.
Design of the 2010-W Proof Silver Eagle
This 2010-W Proof Silver Eagle features a design that had been in American coinage for nearly a century by the time that it was struck, Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty. Lady Liberty’s image extends nearly the full diameter of the coin, with only the mintage year, “2010,” between her foot and the bottom of the coin and part of the “E” in “LIBERTY” at the top separating her from the rim. The sun sets behind a mountain in the distance, creating a beautiful backdrop for Lady Liberty, who is depicted walking toward the left side of the coin. She is draped in the American flag, the starred portion of which extends behind her to her left. She wears a Phrygian cap and carries branches of oak and laurel, which symbolize military and civilian glory, respectively. In the lower right of the coin is the national motto, which reads, “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
The reverse of the coin features John Mercanti’s adaptation of the image from the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle is extended behind a shield. It has its head turned toward the left side of the coin. In its beak, it holds a ribbon that opens on either side. The ribbon bears the words “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one). Arrows are grasped in one of the eagle’s talons and an olive branch is in the other. The mint mark, a “W” for West Point, is inscribed below the olive branch. Over the bird’s head is a triangular design of thirteen five-pointed stars. Along the top half of the rim is the name of the issuing country, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” while the bottom half of the rim has another inscription that includes the coin’s metal content and face value. That reads, “1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR.”
This 2010-W Proof American Silver Eagle NGC PF69 UC is proudly minted by the U.S. Mint. The United States Mint was founded in 1792 and manufactures circulating, collectible, and bullion coinage.
