The American Silver Eagle coin program only contains a 1 oz. silver coin, but these coins are struck in a variety of finishes each year. In 2006, the US Mint built upon the bullion and proof programs with the addition of an uncirculated, or burnished, American Silver Eagle. Today, you can purchase one of these visually stunning 2007 Burnished American Silver Eagle coins from JM Bullion with an MS70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
When the NGC issues a Mint State 70 grade to a coin it is done in recognition of the perfect strike on the coin. The coins available today in this listing have no visible contact marks, blemishes, hairlines, or other flaws. Each of these coins bears a W mint mark, identifying them as products of the West Point Mint in New York.
The Burnished American Silver Eagle coin was introduced in 2006 to provide investors and collectors with a coin that featured a finish worthy of display and exhibition. The burnished coin program ran from 2006 to 2008, with a two-year hiatus in 2009 and 2010 before resuming production in 2011.
Each of American Silver Eagle features the same design from one year to the next. Adolph A. Weinmans Walking Liberty, first used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947, is used on one side of the coin. On the other side is John Mercantis depiction of the heraldic eagle. All Silver Eagle coins boast a silver content of .999 fine silver and have a face value of $1.
On the obverse side of each burnished coin is the depiction of Lady Liberty. The reverse side features Mercantis heraldic eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch in its talon, with 13 stars located above its head in honor of Americas original colonies.
The United States Mint strikes all Burnished American Silver Eagles at the West Point Mint. With more than 621,000 coins struck, the 2007 Burnished American Silver Eagle has the highest mintage of any coin in the uncirculated series. However, the MS70 grade adds rarity to this coin.
