Why should you purchase this 2016 Burnished American Silver Eagle for your collection?
The American Silver Eagle is the most popular coin series not only in the U.S., but also throughout the entire world, making this 30th Anniversary release a deft addition to all collections. The U.S. Mint distinguishes this 2016 release from others in the series with a smooth edged, struck with the incuse lettering, "30th ANNIVERSARY." Accompanying this is a beautiful, satin finish that gives the coin's surface a soft glow. We know this as the "Burnished" finish, and it is achieved when specially polished blanks were used in the minting process.
Featuring brilliant designs by John Mercanti and Adolph A. Weinman
The obverse features the classic Walking Liberty design, created in 1916 by Master Sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman and originally appearing on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. This image has become one of the most recognizable and admired design in American coinage history.
The reverse features a rendition of the United State Great Seal, with the image of a heraldic eagle guarding a shield. The design was created by the U.S. Mint's 12th Chief Engraver, John Mercanti.
Graded Mint State 69 by NGC
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin the grade of Mint State 69. This is the second highest grade a coin can receive, and it is assigned when a coin is well-struck, with only minuscule amounts of imperfection on its surface.
