2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle Proof NGC PF70 First Release
A One of a Kind Event for an American Classic!
In 1986, the U.S. Mint introduced two eagles to the world -- one gold, one silver, both monumental! These coins would significantly raise the bar on what a bullion coin could artistically achieve while revisiting beautiful, yet underused designs from America’s numismatic past. Now, 30 years later, the U.S. Mint is celebrating this milestone with something that’s never been done before on an American Silver Eagle. And if you’re a collector, it’s time to get the cream of this special crop!
For 2016, the American Silver Eagle Proof will have a smooth edge with incused lettering stating this year’s special event -- "30th Anniversary." The reeded edge has disappeared, but Adolph A. Weinman’s beautiful Walking Liberty and John Mercanti’s stoic heraldic eagle remain. Everything will return back to normal in 2017, which makes this a monumental year!
This eye-catching change took some time and effort to get to the stage -- creating something new and unique without changing too much of what people love about Silver Eagles. This extra care is resulting in an abbreviated mintage schedule. Only a few months stand between the first day of production and the last day of 2017. That’s not a lot of time to meet demand!
If you buy your 2016 30th Anniversary American Silver Eagle Proof now through GovMint.com, we’ll be able to send you the best of the best! Your Proof will be graded as flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UCAM) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), reflecting its spectacular mirrored background and deeply frosted images. In addition, your Proof will be designated First Releases, meaning that your coin is among the first struck by the West Point mint and certified within the first 30 days of release. To preserve this perfection, your coin will also arrive sonically sealed in a special three-prong setting that will allow you clear sightlines to every pristine feature. It’s difficult to improve on a beloved classic, but the U.S. Mint definitely did it. Get one today to savor for the future!
