Why buy this 2012-S Silver Proof American Eagle?
This Silver Proof 2012-S American Eagle comes from the 75th Anniversary of the San Francisco Mint set. The coin bears that mint’s “S” Mint mark. NGC provided its grade on a label that bears the image of one of San Francisco’s best known attractions, a trolley.
Who designed the Silver Eagle and what does it represent?
The designs featured on this Silver 2012-S Proof Eagle were created by John Mercanti and Adolph Weinman. Weinman’s 1916 design, the Walking Liberty, appears on the obverse. Laurel and oak branches, which Weinman uses as symbols of civilian and military honors, are being carried by Liberty, who is draped in the American flag. On the reverse, an eagle has its wings spread upward as it guards a union shield. Thirteen stars, which represent the first states, are arranged over the eagle’s head.
What does Proof 69 Ultra Cameo from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation mean?
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation gives coins the grade of Proof 69 when they have just a few imperfections that can’t be seen without magnification. The Ultra Cameo designation is indicative of deeply mirrored fields and devices that are heavily frosted.
