2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle Proof
Three Cheers for Three Decades!
Can you believe that the American Silver Eagle has been around for 30 years? This popular bullion coin, with Adolph A. Weinman’s gorgeous Walking Liberty design and John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle, has been an integral part of silver collections all over the world. To mark this special occasion, the U.S. Mint wanted to do something truly special -- something that hasn’t been done with these iconic coins before, and is far from likely to be repeated. This year, the American Silver Eagle Proofs will have incused lettering along the edge. Along the bottom edge, right along Liberty’s sandals, you’ll find "30th Anniversary" engraved in the silver!
For Silver Eagle fans, this is HUGE. What’s even more huge is that time is running very short. Getting everything in place to replace the traditional reeded edge with the new incused lettering took more time than anticipated. As a result, by the time the first of these Silver Eagle Proofs hit the market, there will be less than four months before the year is up and minting will have to cease for good. The time is definitely now to get yours!
Your 2016 30th Anniversary Silver Eagle Proof will come to you exactly as it left the West Proof Mint in New York, in an original and official U.S. Mint presentation case and package along with a certificate of authenticity. If you know how popular Silver Eagles are, we don’t need to tell you about the big effect this year’s edition will have with collectors. Who knows when this American classic will get such a unique change again? Secure one while you still can!
