Why order this NGC-graded Mint State 69 American 2017-(S) Silver Eagle?
This Silver 2017-(S) American Eagle offers collectors of the iconic coin a new and exciting option. The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Coin World submitted a Freedom of Information Act Request to learn more about the U.S. Mint's expansion of its Silver Eagle production to the San Francisco and Philadelphia mints to supplement their production of the coin at the West Point Mint. Based on the information that they received in response to those requests, NGC was able to confirm conclusively that this coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint, even though it lacks a Mint marks. As with other Silver Eagles, the coin was struck from .999 fine silver.
Beloved Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman
This coin borrows Adolph Weinman's obverse design for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty wears a symbol of freedom, a Phrygian cap, on her head and is draped in the American flag. She extends her right hand as though presenting the morning sun, which rises below it, and holds branches of laurel and oak, which symbolize civilian and military honors, in her left. John Mercanti's reverse design consists of thirteen stars and an eagle protecting a union shield.
Virtually flawless Mint State 69
The experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their second highest grade, Mint State 69. That means that the coin has a minuscule flaw or two, but no flaws are visible to the naked eye.
