Why does this flawless 2017-W Burnished American Silver Eagle coin with a designer signed label belong in your collection?
The U.S. Mint expanded its American Silver Eagle series to include a burnished (uncirculated) variety in 2006. With the exception of 2009 and 2010, the satiny burnished finish coin has been issued each year since its introduction, in typically lower mintages than the proof version.
Exquisite Designs Honoring Liberty and Freedom
Obverse: Lady Liberty is portrayed as a young woman on the obverse with an American flag fashionably draped around her walking form. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2017" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This image, which is an example of the artistry of early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, was originally designed for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Reverse: The reverse features an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, with thirteen stars above. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "W" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." This heraldic design is the Type-1 reverse which appeared on all Silver Eagles from the series' 1986 inception until mid-2021. The image is the work of John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint's currently retired 12th Chief Engraver.
