Why purchase this Burnished 2015-W Silver Eagle?
In 1986, the American Silver Eagle debuted and quickly became the world's favorite bullion coin, combining a classic design with the backing of the US government for weight and purity. On its 20th anniversary in 2006, the U.S Mint issued the first ever Burnished version of the coin, creating an immediate hit among collectors. This 2015-W edition continued that tradition. It was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver at the West Point Mint. Its "W" mint mark and unique finish make it easily distinguishable from its bullion counterpart.
Iconic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
The obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty half dollar, which was issued from 1916-1947. Liberty strides confidently draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, a symbol of her freedom, on her head. She carries laurel and oak branches, symbols of civilian and military honors, respectively, and extends her right hand above the morning sun, as though presenting the new day to the holder.
John Mercanti, who would go on to serve as Chief Engraver of the U.S Mint, designed the reverse. Modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States, is consists of an eagle clutching arrows, symbols of military readiness, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, under an arrangement of thirteen stars. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "1 OZ. FINE SILVER - ONE DOLLAR."
