Why add the 2016-W Proof Silver Eagle signed by John Mercanti to your collection?
Collectors around the world are familiar with the Proof American Silver Eagle. Since the US Mint began producing these popular coins, the design has remained constant. However, for the 2016 releases marking the 30th anniversary of the series, the US Mint has decided to add something quite special: edge-letting that reads, "30th ANNIVERSARY." This is the first and only time that an American Silver Eagle will have this special feature.
Hand-signed by John Mercanti
John Mercanti, the designer of the reverse of the American Silver Eagle and the 12th chief engraver of the US Mint, has hand-signed the labels that have been sonically sealed by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NCG). This gives each coin a personal touch from the very person who crafted this heraldic eagle design. These labels provide an opportunity to add something unique to your collection.
Certified by NGC
These coins have been examined and certified by NGC, where they were awarded the grade of Proof 69 on the 70-point grading scale. Because these coins were submitted to NGC within the first 30 days of release, they have received First Releases designations to add further collectability.
Don't let this opportunity pass-by; Commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Proof Silver Eagle by adding this coin and hand-signed label to your collection!
