2017-W 1 Dollar Burnished Silver Eagle NGC MS70 FDI Jon-Moy Mercanti 3pc Set
The 10th Year of Burnished Silver Eagles Has Arrived!
Since 1986, the United States Mint has released Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition bullion Silver Eagles every year. And, with the understandable exception of 2009, annual Silver Eagle Proofs have always followed close behind. However, there's one type of Silver Eagle that has a far fewer collective mintage than either one above -- the Burnished Silver Eagle. Struck from specially burnished planchets, these Silver Eagles are perennial collector favorites -- that is, when they see the light of day! First introduced in 2006, the Burnished Silver Eagle saw three years of production before taking a pause in 2009 and 2010 due to The Great Recession. Minting resumed in 2011 and has been going strong since. Now, 2017 brings the 10th annual release of the Burnished Silver Eagle, just in time for the U.S. Mint's 225th anniversary!
A Magnificent Matte Finish Meets Legendary Design in This Three-Coin Set!
Each legal-tender one dollar 2017 Burnished Silver Eagle in this three-coin set features the classic combination of Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty and John Mercanti's heraldic eagle -- a stunning pairing that BU and Proof Silver Eagles have featured for decades. However, the artisans at the West Point Mint have added a special dimension to these time-tested standards. Each one ounce blank of 99.9% pure silver is specially burnished, giving each finished Silver Eagle a smooth matte finish. In addition, each coin is also struck with a special "W" mintmark, unlike the BU Silver Eagle. It all comes together in a spectacular set that your collection can't be without!
Awesome Additions Make These Eagles Irresistible!
Your three-piece 2017 Burnished Silver Eagle set will also arrive to you with these fantastic features:
- Each coin will be certified Mint State-70 (MS70) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded Burnished Silver Eagles will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- Each Burnished Silver Eagle will also be certified First Day of Issue (FDI) by NGC -- independent authentication that your coins were released by the mint during the premier day of the series' 2017 issue.
- In addition, your coins will be sonically sealed in individual acrylic cases with white display cores -- giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- Finally, all of the unique characteristics of your Burnished Silver Eagles will be described in detail on the acrylic cases' labels, one of which will come hand-signed by Elizabeth Jones, the 11th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. Appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, Elizabeth oversaw the creation and launch of the Silver Eagle series in 1986! The second will come hand-signed by the designer of the Silver Eagle's reverse, 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti, and the third hand-signed by 38th Director of the U.S. Mint Edmund C. Moy!
While recent production numbers for BU Silver Eagles can be measured in tens of millions, average Burnished Silver Eagle mintages usually count in the low 100,000s. Combine those figures with the superb finish of these Silver Eagles and you can see why these coins don't take up residence in our vault for long. Don't wait -- make this 2017 Burnished Silver Eagle set yours today!
