2016 is one of the most significant years in US Mint history. Not only is the mint celebrating the centennial of three of the nation’s most popular coin designs ever with a series of 24-karat gold products, it is also the 30th anniversary of the beloved American Silver Eagle coins.
With sales annually in recent years well in excess of 20 to 30 million coins, dating back to 2008, the American Silver Eagle bullion coin is the world’s top seller. The Proof American Silver Eagle is a favorite of collectors, and it has a fresh change just for 2016.
As part of the 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle release and 30th anniversary celebration, the US Mint has added edge lettering to these coins commemorating 30 years of production. This is the first time the US Mint has ever done edge lettering on the American Silver Eagle coin.
Each 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle coin listed here is a perfect specimen. The NGC has issued each a PF70 grade, indicating the presence of its full, original mint luster. Additionally, there are no detracting flaws anywhere on the coin’s surface areas. The Early Release designation applies to coins received by the NGC for certification within the first 30 days of the release date by the US Mint.
On the obverse of the Proof American Silver Eagle is Adolph A. Weinman’s iconic Walking Liberty design. It features Lady Liberty walking toward the setting sun with her right hand outstretched and the American flag draped over her shoulders.
The reverse of the 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle includes the heraldic eagle of the US. This design first debuted on original American coinage from the US Mint in 1794. Over the past two centuries it has been updated, including this 1986 refinement from former Chief Engraver of the US Mint, John Mercanti.
