Why choose this Mint State 70 Early Releases 2017-W Burnished Silver Eagle with a Mercanti signature label?
The American Silver Eagle series was unveiled in 1986 and the burnished finish was introduced during the 20th anniversary. Many collectors are drawn to these coins because they tend to have lower mintage figures. The West Point branch of the Mint struck this 2017-W burnished Silver Eagle.
Symbolic artwork from Weinman and Mercanti
Liberty can be seen in stride with one arm before her on the obverse. This is Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty design and it has been a favorite since its first use in 1916.
A bald eagle is depicted on the reverse. It has a banner in its beak and a shield over its chest. This highly symbolic design is the work of John Mercanti.
