Why add the 2016 1 oz. American Silver Eagle NGC MS69 Early Releases (Mercanti Signed Label) to your collection?
This 2016 1 oz. American Silver Eagle has been graded MS69 by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The coin also features the highly sought after Early Releases label and an NGC exclusive hand signature from retired 12th US Mint engraver John M. Mercanti designer of the reverse.
The American Silver Eagle is the premier silver bullion program of the US Mint. First introduced in 1986, this annual release is highly prized by bullion enthusiasts and coin collectors alike. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle program. Each coin is legal tender in the United States and contains 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
The obverse of this coin features the goddess Liberty walking across a field, bathed in the warmth of the rising sun, wrapped in the American Flag. This design is based on Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty Half Dollar which is one of the most iconic in all of American Numismatics.
John M. Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint designed and engraved the eagle featured on the reverse of the ASE, featured with majestic outstretched wings, a shield protecting his chest and his feet holding arrows and an olive branch.
To qualify for Early Release designation, coins must be received by NGC within 30 days release. Adding to the exclusivity of this special label, is the authentic hand signature of John M. Mercanti.
