CELEBRATE THE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOST POPULAR SILVER PROOF COIN – THE AMERICAN SILVER EAGLE
For the fist time ever! A unique and different U.S. Mint Silver Eagle Proof “letter edge Design”
Issued in 1986 by the United States Mint, the American Silver Eagle is a favorite among many collectors. These coins weigh a full troy ounce composed of .999 fine silver, making it one of the most attractive and distinguished pieces minted by the United States. Its “Walking Liberty” design is based on the classic 1916 half dollar design.
United States Mint proof coins are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. Their frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Proof blanks are specially treated, polished and cleaned to ensure high-quality strikes. Each coin also bears the “W” mint mark reflecting its striking at the United States Mint facility at West Point. The 2016-W 1 oz Silver American Eagle Proof is packaged in a blue velvet, satin-lined presentation case and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
