Why add the 2017-W Burnished American Silver Eagle NGC MS69 to your collection?
This 2017-W Burnished American Silver Eagle achieved the elevated Mint State 69 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The series was introduced by the US Mint in 1986 as America's official silver bullion coin and has had unprecedented success in the intervening years. This example was struck on a .999 fine silver 1 oz. planchet at the West Point Branch of the Mint.
Beautiful Weinman obverse design
Noted artist Adolph Weinman was the genius behind the image used on the obverse of this series. The image depicts Lady Liberty carrying the American Flag, and laurel and oak branches as symbols of unity, prosperity, and strength. The artist responsible for the reverse image is John Mercanti, former Chief Engraver of the US Mint. His Heraldic Eagle appears beneath a field of thirteen stars and clutches arrows and the olive branch of peace.
Collectible Mint State 69 "Uncirculated" finish
The "Burnished" or uncirculated collector finish from the US Mint is achieved through a specialized process wherein the planchet is polished in a metal-on-metal application prior to being struck. This polishing gives the finished coin a matte appearance. Coins with this finish are "Numismatic" versions of the coin and often have lower mintages than their proof counterparts. Mint State 69 coins are highly regarded collector-grade coins with excellent characteristics.
