2016-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle Proof PCGS PR70DCAM First Strike
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. 30 years later, the U.S. Mint celebrated this milestone with something that had 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 was produced with a smooth edge featuring incused lettering that stated the year's special event -- "30th Anniversary." The reeded edge disappeared, but Adolph A. Weinman's beautiful Walking Liberty and John Mercanti's stoic heraldic eagle remained. Everything returned back to normal in 2017, which makes this a monumental release!
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 loved about Silver Eagles. This extra care resulted in an abbreviated mintage schedule. Only a few months stood between the first day of production and the last day of 2016. That's not a lot of time to meet demand!

Your Proof will be graded as flawless Proof-70 Deep Cameo (PR70DC) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), reflecting its spectacular mirrored background and deeply frosted images.

To preserve this perfection, your coin will also arrive sonically sealed in a clear acrylic holder 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!
