Why should you purchase this Proof 70 Deep Cameo 2016-W Proof American Silver Eagle graded by PCGS with the First Strike 30th Anniversary label?
This stunning Proof American Silver Eagle is the perfect way to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the popular U.S. silver bullion coin series. 2016 marks the only year that a Proof American Silver Eagle will boast incused edge lettering reading "30th ANNIVERSARY." As well, this coin was graded by the Profesional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) with the 30th Anniversary label.
What designs are present on the 2016 Proof Silver Eagle?
The obverse of the American Silver Eagle shows Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design that he created for a silver half dollar back in 1916. While the American Silver Eagle is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, this classic U.S. coin design is celebrating its centennial!
The reverse of the American Silver Eagle was created just for the U.S.'s new bullion coin series back in 1986 by John Mercanti. This design of a heraldic eagle made the man famous, and in 2006 he was made the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.
The unique feature of this 2016 American Silver Eagle is its edge lettering. Only the Proof, and later this year, Uncirculated American Silver Eagles will have this impressive feature.
