2013-W Proof Silver Eagle
The 2013 issue of the proof Silver Eagle was struck at the West Point Mint in New York. While the West Point Mint seemed to come out of nowhere, the facility had actually been in use for many years by the government for bullion storage. Many other modern proofs are struck at West Point as well.
PCGS Proof 70 Deep Cameo 2013-W Silver Eagle
This 2013 West Point Proof Silver Eagle was submitted to PCGS for grading. The grade of Proof 70 was given to this coin, the highest grade that a proof coin can receive. This proof Silver Eagle is perfect, even when viewed under magnification.
When you look at this Silver Eagle, it’s practically impossible to miss the contrast between the design and the background. The contrast is so extreme that the coin almost appears to be black and white. This feature is why the coin received the Deep Cameo designation.
This coin is permanently sealed in a PCGS slab. The slab is quite hard and will preserve and protect the coin.
2013 Proof Silver Eagle Design
Just like other Silver Eagles, the 2013 proof issue shows Liberty on the front. This is Adolph A. Weinman’s design and it was originally used for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. In this design, the sun is shining while Liberty walks across the scene. She has one arm extended before her and carries a bundle of branches with the other. The inscriptions on this side read “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2013.”
The back of this coin is the work of John Mercanti. The upper portion of the design shows 13 stars. Below the stars there is a bald eagle with a shield over its body. This side of the coin reads “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
