Why order this Specimen 69 First Strike 2017-W Burnished Silver Eagle with a U.S. Mint 225th anniversary label?
From 1986 to 2005, the American Silver Eagle was available with either a brilliant uncirculated finish or a proof finish. This changed in 2006 with the addition of the burnished finish. The burnished Silver Eagle shown here was struck at the West Point branch of the U.S. Mint in 2017.
Impressive patriotic art on obverse and reverse
The iconic Liberty design on the obverse is the work of Adolph A. Weinman. This design was first used in 1916 and its immense popularity was the reason for its use in the Silver Eagle series.
A finely detailed John Mercanti design can be seen on the reverse. The eagle is pictured with arrows and an olive branch in its grasp. Just above it there are 13 stars arranged in a triangular pattern.
