2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Burnished Silver Eagle NGC MS70 First Releases 30th Anniversary
With Edge Lettering, These 2016 Burnished Silver Eagles Are Celebrating Their Big Anniversary in Style!
2016 was a banner year for United States coins, with one of the biggest events being the release of the year's 30th Anniversary Silver Eagle Proofs. Featuring incused lettering on a smooth edge for the first (and, most likely, only) time ever on a Silver Eagle, collectors waited nearly nine months to finally get their hands on these fantastic proofs. Fortunately, the U.S. Mint isn't stopping there! For only the ninth time since 2006, the mint is producing a limited amount of Uncirculated/Burnished Silver Eagles. That's right -- for a small window of time, you'll be able to get the unique edge of the 2016 Silver Eagle Proofs on a burnished coin. Now that's a way to ring in a Pearl Anniversary!
To begin, these 2016 Silver Eagles have the same design as those that came before it -- Adolph A. Weinman's gorgeous Lady Liberty paired with John Mercanti's heraldic eagle. But these coins inhabit a unique middle ground. Unlike Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) bullion Silver Eagles, these have a "W" mintmark for the West Point Mint and are minted using specially burnished planchets. This special polishing gives these coins more of a matte finish than either BU or Proof Silver Eagles. Plus, unlike their bullion brethren, these 2016 Silver Eagles will have the year's exclusive smooth edge, engraved with the inscription "30th ANNIVERSARY" right below Liberty's feet.
But it doesn't stop there! Your 2016 Burnished Silver Eagle will arrive with several other features:
- Your coin will be graded Mint State-70 (MS70) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded 2016 Burnished Silver Eagle will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- Your 2016 Burnished Silver Eagle will also be certified First Releases (FR) by NGC, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was certified within the first 30 days of issue.
- Your coin will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with white display core -- giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- All of your 2016 Burnished Silver Eagle's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case’s label, which heralds the coin's landmark 30th anniversary.
In the years when the U.S. Mint has minted Burnished Silver Eagles, the production numbers have been significantly lower than those of regular bullion Silver Eagles. In 2015, for example, while 46 million bullion Silver Eagles were produced, only 223,879 Burnished Silver Eagles were minted. That's not even one-half of one percent! While the mintage numbers for 2016 have yet to be set, we're expecting history to repeat itself! Add to that the already high demand for 2016's Silver Eagles, and we're expecting collectors to buy these up as soon as they're available. Don't take any chances -- get this 2016 30th Anniversary Burnished Silver Eagle for you collection today!
