2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle NGC PF69 - Black
Thirty Years of Walking Liberty's Return!
It's been a century since Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty was first engraved on a coin. A part of 1916's unparalleled class of coin designs, including the Mercury Dime and the Standing Liberty Quarter, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar uniquely combined rich symbolism and artistic craft. Unfortunately, this design disappeared in 1948 with the introduction of the Franklin Half Dollar. However, when it came time to find a design for a new series of silver bullion coins in 1986, the U.S. Mint didn't have to look far to find a perfect match.
30 years later, the Walking Liberty is still striding across the land with every new issue of the American Silver Eagle. To celebrate three decades of this iconic design, the U.S. Mint will be doing something tremendously special. For the 2016 30th Anniversary American Silver Eagle Proof, both Weinman's design and John Mercanti's heraldic eagle will stay intact. But, the reeded edge will be replaced with a smooth finish -- save for incuse lettering of "30th Anniversary" right below Liberty's feet. It's a significant change, and one that's just for 2016.
If you're a Silver Eagle collector, this is just the type of remix to make you fall in love all over again. But there's a slight hitch. The amount of planning and configuration it took to get everything together for the new edge created some delays, resulting in only four months of available mintage for this Proof. It's anyone's guess as to whether this will be enough time to meet demand for such a unique Proof. There's only one way to ensure that you have this in your collection -- buy yours now from GovMint.com!
This 2016 30th Anniversary American Silver Eagle Proof is truly special. Your Proof will come graded as almost flawless Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69 UCAM) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). And, the proof will come sonically sealed in NGC's iconic and protective acrylic case. But, instead of a white insert, it will come with a special black, three-prong insert. This difference in color will give greater contrast to the coin's intricate features and provide clear views of the coin's edge lettering. For fans of numismatic art, the choice is clear (or opaque, in this case)! As we mentioned, time is not on anyone's side for this unique treasure. Don't let collector demand create a hole in your collection -- get yours today!
