What is the design of the 2016 Proof Silver Eagle?
This stunning coin boasts edge lettering that read "30th ANNIVERSARY." This text is struck incuse onto a smooth edge. For the Silver Eagle, which is typically minted with a reeded edge, this is an exciting change!
The obverse design is Adolph Weinman's stunning Walking Liberty design. It was created by the legendary numismatic figure back in 1916 for a Silver Half Dollar, and actually is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
The reverse design was created much more recently by John Mercanti. Before his tenure as 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, Mercanti created this heraldic eagle reverse of the American Silver Eagle. While this design was first shadowed by Weinman's classic design featured on the obverse, it has become famous in modern numismatics
