2017-W 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle NGC PF70UCAM FDI 225th Anniversary - Black
225 Years of Heritage Meets the Fourth Decade of Silver Eagle Proofs!
Ever since the United States Mint struck its first Silver Eagle Proofs in 1986, collectors have sought out these one-ounce, government-guaranteed, 99.9% pure silver coins for their own. The rebirth of Adolph A. Weinman's lush Walking Liberty, paired with the stoic gravitas of John Mercanti's heraldic eagle, took the numismatic world by storm. Now, after an historic 30th Anniversary, the Silver Eagle Proof is going strong into year 31 with the return of its traditional reeded edge.
And, while past its pearl anniversary, this Silver Eagle Proof is now part of another important celebration -- the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Mint. From a small building on the corner of 7th and Arch Streets in Philadelphia, the U.S. Mint has grown to become one of the largest and most renowned mints in the world. This Silver Eagle Proof arrives exactly at this important quasquibicentennial!
Your 2017 Silver Eagle Proof will arrive to your collection with several stunning features:
- Your coin will be graded Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded Silver Eagle Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- In addition, your Silver Eagle Proof will be certified First Day of Issue (FDI) by NGC -- independent authentication that your coin was released by the mint during the premier day of the series' release.
- Your proof will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a black core insert -- providing you the best in protection while giving you clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail. In 1987, NGC used this same color of display core when they started grading coins, switching to white as their default color soon after. Now, NGC has reintroduced this popular "retro" core color!
- Finally, all of your Silver Eagle Proof's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case's special 225th Anniversary label, celebrating the founding of the U.S. Mint in 1792 and featuring an image of the first mint in Philadelphia.
Proof Silver Eagles are traditionally struck in far fewer numbers than those minted for circulation. And, with 2017 being a big year for the United States Mint, we expect these Silver Eagle Proofs to quickly join collections across the country and around the world. Don't miss out on the party -- order your 2017 Silver Eagle Proofs today!
