Besides the competitively low mintages, the proof eagles are also sought after for their beautiful mint packaging and remarkable "mirrored" finish that makes them glisten. Although the 1996 American Silver Eagle BU contains the lowest mintage in the brilliant uncirculated bullion coin series, the 1996 proof has a higher mintage than most of the Proof Silver Eagles. But then again, high mintage for proof silver eagles means something very different when compared to the incredibly high mintages of its brilliant uncirculated counterpart. Only 500,000 Proof Silver Eagles were minted in 1996, which pales in comparison to the usual unlimited mintages of most Brilliant Uncirculated coins. The best way to preserve these low mintage beauties is to invest in certified versions that prove the coin's excellent and Mint-State condition.
Your Certified Proof Silver Eagle 1996 PF70 NGC is guaranteed by the US government and contains .999 silver. Your coin comes encapsulated in an official NGC holder, that is sealed to protect your coin from future tarnishing and scratching. Adolph Weinman's fantastic portrayal of Lady Liberty is displayed on the coin's obverse. The Great Seal of the United States of American is illustrated on the back of the coin. The seal may be recognized from the one dollar bill, United States passports, and military emblems. This seal has been used for over a hundred years and symbolizes so much for the nation. The design is of an eagle, protected by a shield, with the infamous Latin saying, "E pluribus unum," written on a banner across the eagle's wings. The eagle's right talon is holding an olive branch to represent a peaceful nation and the left talon is clenching arrows symbolizing the right to defend the country.
