Why purchase this flawless Burnished 2018-W American Silver Eagle coin?
The American Silver Eagle coin has been a favorite choice for collectors since introduced in 1986. In 2006, the U.S. Mint expanded the series to include a second collectible version struck on specially burnished blanks. The coin features a magnificent satiny finish and a West Point "W" Mint mark to clearly differentiate it from the bullion issue. This 40.6 mm diameter 2018-W Burnished American Silver Eagle is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
Beauty and Elegance of Walking Liberty
The obverse features a revival of the classic image of Lady Liberty as struck on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by Adolph A. Weinman. Liberty gracefully advances toward the sunrise draped in the American flag, accompanied by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2018."
John Mercanti is credited with the reverse image, which illustrates a heraldic eagle with a shield grasping an olive branch and arrows. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "W" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
