Why does this exceptionally graded First Day of Issue 5-piece set of 2022-W American Silver Eagle proof coins deserve a place in your collection?
A monumental change was bestowed upon the American Silver Eagle series in 2021, as the U.S. Mint celebrated the thirty-fifth anniversary of the iconic silver dollar by retiring the Type-1 heraldic eagle on the reverse. The Type-2 Silver Eagle was launched partway through the year, featuring a newly fashioned eagle preparing to land on the reverse. This unique assembly of five 2022 Silver Eagle coins includes certification labels signed by five people who influenced the series since its inception in 1986.
Breathtaking Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: Liberty is metaphorically represented on the obverse as a young woman draped in the American flag. Ms. Liberty walks towards the rising sun with a bundle of oak and laurel branches cradled in her arm. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2022," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the "AW" monogram. The patriotic image was initially struck upon the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916, the design of which is credited to award-winning early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: An eagle is portrayed in descending flight on the reverse, clutching a branch of oak, as if to add it to its nest. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and the West Point Mint mark "W." The Type-2 eagle landing rendition is the work of renowned nature illustrator Emily Damstra, one of the U.S. Mint's Artistic Infusion Program artists since 2014. Michael Gaudioso, a prolific designer/engraver for the U.S. Mint since 2009, is the artist who transformed the design into a sculpted three-dimensional image.
Flawless Proof 70 Set
Each of the five coins in this 2022-W American Silver Eagle proof set was submitted to a reputable third party grading service within twenty-four hours of release, qualifying for the First Day of Issue attribution. Featuring perfect strikes, pristine surfaces and sensational eye appeal, each coin was awarded the superior grade of Proof 70. The coins are presented in individual, sonically sealed black core holders, each with a hand-signed certification label. The four silver dollars graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) are accompanied by labels signed by Michael Gaudioso, engraver of the eagle landing graphic, David Ryder, the U.S. Mint Director when the Type-2 variety of the American Silver Eagle was introduced, Elizabeth Jones, the Chief Engraver at the time of the Silver Eagle series launch in 1986, and John Mercanti, the Mint's 12th Chief Engraver and designer of the Type-1 heraldic eagle image. The coin submitted to the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) is adorned with a label signed by the Type-2 eagle landing design creator Emily Damstra.
