Why purchase this Proof Silver 2016-W American Eagle?
This Silver Proof 2016-W American Eagle is the Proof version of this year's edition of the world's most popular bullion coin. 2016 is a major year for the series, since it marks the coins 30th anniversary. In honor of this numismatic achievement, the coin has been struck with very special incused edge lettering. This text will read "30th ANNIVERSARY."
Struck from .999 fine silver, these coins bears the "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint on the bottom left of the reverse. This coin is a great choose for those who love the Walking Liberty design and would like a proof of it. This incredible design is actually celebrating its centennial in 2016 - a year of anniversaries!
Stunning Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman designed the image that appears on the obverse of this Proof Silver Eagle for the Walking Liberty half dollar. Liberty walks toward the left side of the coin, where the sun is rising on the horizon.
John Mercant's reverse features an eagle guarding a union shield. He modeled the image, which also includes thirteen stars, off of the Great Seal of the United States.
Nearly Perfect Proof 69 Ultra Cameo First Release with exclusive Theodore Roosevelt Label
This coin received the second highest grade, Proof 69, from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade indicates that the coin has just an error or two, but neither one is visible to the naked eye. NGC printed this grade, along with their certifications of the coin as an Ultra Cameo and First Release, on a label that features an image of President Theodore Roosevelt mounted on a horse, as well as a facsimile of his signature.
