Why buy this Silver 2016 Eagle?
Avid numismatists will note that there are two important anniversaries associated with this American Silver Eagle. The first is the thirtieth of the coin’s initial release in 1986. The second, which is somewhat less well known, is that this marks the 100th anniversary of Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty design, which first appeared on the half dollar and today appears on the obverse of this coin. Clevelanders will especially appreciate the MLB Indians logo provided by NGC.
Who designed the Silver American Eagle and what does it represent?
Adolph Weinman’s design, which was used on the half dollar from 1916-1947, features Liberty walking in the direction of the sun, which is setting on the horizon in the lower left. She has a Phrygian cap upon her head and is draped in an American flag. John Mercanti designed the reverse, where an eagle protects a union shield, which represents the country. An arrangement of thirteen stars harks back to the original states.
What does GEM Brilliant Uncirculated from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation mean?
This coin earned the designation of GEM Brilliant Uncirculated from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation because it lacks any signs of wear and retains 95% or more of its mint luster.
