Why add the 2018-W Burnished American Silver Eagle NGC MS69 to your collection?
This 2018-W Burnished American Silver Eagle was awarded the elevated Mint State 69 (MS69) grade from the third party grading experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The ASE series was introduced in 1986 as the U.S. Mint's official silver bullion coin and has enjoyed unprecedented success since inception. This example was struck on a 1 oz. .999 fine silver planchet at the West Point Branch of the U.S. Mint.
Beautiful Weinman obverse design
Artist Adolph A. Weinman was the designer behind the stirring image used on the obverse of this iconic series. The image depicts Lady Liberty wrapped in the American Flag as she holds laurel and oak branches as symbols of unity, prosperity and strength. The artist responsible for the reverse image is John M. Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint. His Heraldic Eagle appears beneath an inverted triangular field of thirteen stars as it clutches arrows and an olive branch.
Collectible MS69 "Uncirculated" finish
The "Burnished" or uncirculated collector finish from the U.S. Mint is achieved because the planchet is polished in a specialized manner before being struck. This polishing gives the finished coin a uniform and frosty appearance. Coins with this finish are "Numismatic" versions of the series and typically have lower mintage numbers than proofs. MS69 coins are highly regarded collector-grade coins with excellent characteristics.
