2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle Proof NGC PF69UCAM
A Lot Can Happen in 30 Years -- Except For This!
For anything, 30 years is a pretty good chunk of time to stick around. When something hits the three decade mark, momentum is pretty much on its side! This is especially true for great designs -- if you can stand tall with very few (if any) changes, you're obviously doing something right. However, to keep things interesting or to celebrate a great event, you have to add something special. For American Silver Eagle collectors, that time has come!
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the American Silver Eagle, the U.S. Mint is producing a 2016 Proof with one unique feature -- incused lettering on the edge. That's right! Adolph A. Weinman's classic Walking Liberty and John Mercanti's heraldic eagle are being joined by a smooth edge with a single inscription, "30th Anniversary," along Liberty's feet. It's a first for the bullion coin, but not something that the U.S. Mint will continue into future years. (At least, that's what we're hearing!)
This first took a while to get ready for prime time, and it involved replacing the Silver Eagle's traditional reeded edge with a smooth edge. Because of the delay, there are only a few months to produce enough Proofs to meet demand. Will there be enough of these unique coins for every collection? Only time will tell!
However, if you buy yours today, you don't have to worry! Your 2016 30th Anniversary Silver Eagle Proof will come to you graded as almost flawless Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69 UCAM) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). In addition, your coin will come to you sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a three-prong holder so you can see every detail, from heads to tails to edge, without exposing the coin to the elements. With a first-time feature, a limited production schedule and a huge collector following, this Silver Eagle Proof has all the signs of a blockbuster. Get yours today!
