Why add the Proof 69 2016-W Proof American Silver Eagle with Flag label to your collection?
The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) graded this 2016-W Proof American Silver Eagle the high collector grade of Proof 69 and assigned it the desirable Deep Cameo designation. It was slabbed with the sought after First Strike Flag label.
The US Mint introduced the American Silver Eagle in 1986. These coins are the official silver bullion coin of the United States and are legal tender silver dollar coins. Each 1 oz. silver coin is guaranteed to be .999 pure. This specimen was struck at the West Point, New York US Mint facility.
The iconic obverse is from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar which was designed in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman. The Goddess Liberty strides as she carries symbols of Peace and prosperity in the form of laurel and oak branches. The reverse of the coin was designed by 13th Chief Engraver of the US Mint, John M. Mercanti. It features the classic symbol of America, the Bald Eagle.
In an incredible change from the standard, 2016 Proof Silver Eagles have been struck with a smooth edge and incused edge lettering. This text reads "30th ANNIVERSARY," and honors this momentous year for the famous U.S. silver bullion series.
Proof 69 coins are excellent collector coins that exhibit superior eye appeal and luminous Mint luster. Deep Cameo coins are the highest quality proofs that exhibit the coveted contrast between the raised, frosted design details and the mirrored negative space, or fields of the coin.
