The American Silver Eagles were the first US produced silver bullion coins. Following Mexico's lead of the silver Libertad, the US desired to mint their own silver coin that carried an actual legal tender value, which would be backed by the US government. Coin collectors were ecstatic to see a beautifully struck coin that also contain an intrinsic value. When the Proof Silver Eagle followed shortly after, collectors were in awe of this newly minted coin with a mirrored finish. With lower mintages than the brilliant uncirculated versions, the Proof Silver Eagles caught investors' attention as well.
Your Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2004 PF70 NGC has a weight and silver content backed by the US government. Guaranteed to weigh one ounce of .999 silver, your Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2004 PF70 NGC is encased in an official NGC holder. NGC is the lead grading agency in the US and is known worldwide. They are specifically admired for their incredibly high grading standards as well as beautifully sleek packaging. Lady Liberty, a familiar face from the Walking Liberty half dollars that were in circulation from 1916-1947, is featured on the obverse of the silver eagles. Adolph A. Weinman, a German American sculptor, was chosen to create the original Walking Liberty design. To honor Weinman's masterpiece and revive the popular Walking Liberty design, the US Mint has assigned every American Silver Eagle with the Lady Liberty we all know and love. The reverse contains an illustration of the US Coat of Arms, which is an eagle covered by a shield. The eagle holds, with its left talon, 13 arrows in honor of the original 13 colonies. The right talon is clenching an olive branch to represent peace.
