To honor the most widely collectible coin in the world for the last 30 years, the US MINT has made this coin like nothing before in its history. Only a select number of Silver Eagles made in 2016 will use a special technique that highlights the 30th anniversary inscribed on the coin's edge.
The Silver Eagle is a genuine legal tender silver proof coin struck by the United States Mint. It has been made each year since 1986 in a limited edition and is now one of the world's most popular silver proof coins. The obverse of the 2016 Silver Eagle Dollar features Adolph A. Weinman's famous "Walking Liberty" design that first appeared on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916-1947. This is one of the most beautiful coin designs of all time, showing Lady Liberty striding forwards in a flowing gown and wrapped by the American flag. The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle, together with the U.S. Government's guarantee that the coin contains "1 Oz. Fine Silver" and the face value of "One Dollar." It is legal tender.
We arranged for the very best "Inaugural Strike" coins to be immediately graded and certified by ANACS and the coins offered here have been independently graded and certified as perfect Proof 70 (abbreviated PR70) condition making this one of the rarest and best 2016 Proof SILVER EAGLES. This is certified as an Inaugural Strike. The combination of "Inaugural Strike" and PR70 makes it a collector's treasure. However only 420 are available. When they are gone no more coins can be certified as "Inaugural Strike."
This coin is minted with 1oz .999 Silver and bears the highly coveted “W” West Point mint mark.
