This beautiful Silver Eagle hs been graded in perfect MS70 condition by the respected ANACS coin grading company. It comes in a certified, tamper-proof holder with a holographic seal and is from the first day of release at the Mint. Just 734 perfect MS70 Inaugural Strike specimens are available.
Often referred to as "Burnished Uncirculated" or "Satin Finish" Silver Eagles, the Mint run for these coins is miniscule compared to other varieties of Silver Eagles. In a process similar to that used to create Proof American Eagle coins, the burnished blanks are hand-loaded one at a time into specially-adapted coining presses. Like the Proof American Eagles, these satin-finish coins carry the "W" mint mark of the United States Mint at West Point.
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. With their mirror bright surface as a beautiful contrast to the frosted high relief images, Proof Silver Eagles are one of America’s most stunning coins. This 2016 Eagle has been graded in flawless Proof-70 condition by ANACS and come in a tamper-proof holder that protects the coin from damage. The coin is from the first day of release and is a limited edition of just 420 specimens.
