Why buy this Proof 2016-W American Silver Eagle from Congratulations Set?
This Congratulations Set 2016-W American Silver Eagle Proof is the perfect gift for those who celebrated a significant life event, such as a wedding, a birth or a graduation, in 2016. This particular issue is unique because it bears one-year-only incused edge lettering, which reads, "30TH ANNIVERSARY," a reference to the significant milestone for the Silver Eagle series, which debuted in 1986. The coin was struck from .999 fine silver at the West Point Mint and bears that mint's "W" Mint mark.
Classic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design features on the obverse. Liberty stretches her right hand out in front of her, as though she is presenting the rising sun to the holder. She is draped in the American flag and carries laurel and oak branches, which serve as symbols of honors bestowed upon civilians and members of the military, respectively.
On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. John Mercanti's design features an eagle protection a union shield as it clutches arrows and an olive branch. Above its head are thirteen stars, one for each of the original states.
Uncirculated GEM Proof
The Professional Coin Grading Service certified that this coin is in GEM Proof condition. That means that the coin is in Mint State 65 or better condition. The coin has at least an above average strike but may have minor marks or hairlines.
