Out of the 33,742,500 total Silver Eagles minted in 2012, only 1,724 (W) coins have been certified as an MS70 grade by NGC.
33,742,500 American Silver Eagle Coins were minted in 2012. However, this particular 2012 (W) American Silver Eagle Coin is one of the rare 1,724 to receive an MS70 (Mint State 70) grade by the NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation). To be certified with a grade of MS70, a coin has to be in brand new, non-circulated condition. Their original luster must be absolutely free of any scuffs, hairline marks and contact marks.
Coins with a perfect condition, like this one, are the rarest and most difficult to find, which makes them extremely valuable to investors and collectors alike. To maintain their newly minted condition, each certified American Silver Eagle Coin has been sealed and kept in its original NGC protective case.
Each of these coins was minted from 1 troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver at the West Point branch of the United States Mint. The high quality of the silver is complemented by the high level of craftsmanship demonstrated in the coin’s intricate and detailed engravings.
The front of the coin depicts the personification of Liberty as she approaches the rising sun with one arm cradling a bundle of branches and the other arm extended in an inviting gesture. This image symbolizes the freedom and opportunities that our nation generously shares with those who come to our country.
The back of the coin features the Great Seal of the United States, which is an emblem of an eagle behind a flag. It clutches an olive branch and a set of arrows in its talons as a representation of our government’s willingness to ensure the peace and protection of this country. The patriotic illustrations featured on this coin are a stunning tribute to the core beliefs and values that made this nation great.
