  • Description:

    The Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2016-W PF70 NGC Lettered Edge coin stands as a testament to the pinnacle of numismatic excellence. Minted in 2016, this remarkable specimen is part of the esteemed American Silver Eagle series but is distinguished by a special lettered edge. With its perfect Proof 70 (PF70) grade as certified by NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), this coin exemplifies the highest standards of design, craftsmanship, and preservation that define the series.

    The American Silver Eagle series, initiated in 1986, was authorized by the Liberty Coin Act of 1985 with a dual purpose: to provide a reliable source of silver bullion for investors and to showcase the exceptional artistry of American coinage. Over the years, these coins have become an emblem of American patriotism and the enduring allure of silver as an investment.

    The Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2016-W coin features the iconic Walking Liberty design on its obverse, originally created by Adolph A. Weinman and featured on the 1916-1947 half dollar. Lady Liberty, adorned in the American flag and striding toward the rising sun, symbolizes liberty and hope. On the reverse side of the coin, you'll find John Mercanti's majestic bald eagle design. This portrayal includes a shield, an olive branch, and a bundle of arrows, signifying America's commitment to peace and defense. The eagle's outstretched wings signify strength and freedom, encapsulating the essence of the United States.

    The coin adheres to the standard specifications of the American Silver Eagle series, with a diameter of 40.6 millimeters (1.598 inches) and a weight of 31.1035 grams (1.000 troy ounce). These dimensions ensure compatibility with a wide range of coin accessories and presentation options, catering to collectors and investors alike. With a purity of .999 fine silver, this coin maintains the exceptional quality synonymous with the series. The high silver purity guarantees that each coin contains nearly pure silver, making it an attractive choice for those looking to include precious metals in their investment portfolios.

    The "W" mintmark signifies that this coin was minted at the West Point Mint, an esteemed facility renowned for its precision and craftsmanship. The West Point Mint has consistently contributed to the production of American Silver Eagles, upholding the series' reputation for excellence.

    What sets the Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2016-W coin apart is its special lettered edge, which adds an extra layer of uniqueness and collectibility. The edge of the coin typically bears inscriptions of "E PLURIBUS UNUM," the year of issue "2016," and "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," separated by stars. The presence of these inscriptions on the edge rather than the face of the coin is a distinguishing feature that enhances its desirability among collectors.

    The coin's perfect PF70 grade, assigned by NGC, reflects its impeccable condition. Coins graded as PF70 are considered to be in flawless condition, with no visible imperfections even under close scrutiny. This high grade underscores the coin's overall quality and its appeal to collectors who seek pristine specimens.

    The Certified Proof Silver Eagle 2016-W PF70 NGC Lettered Edge coin is a shining exemplar of numismatic artistry, craftsmanship, and preservation. Its rich history, iconic design, standard size, high silver purity, association with the West Point Mint, unique lettered edge, limited mintage, and prestigious PF70 grade collectively make it a treasured addition to any coin collection or investment portfolio. As part of the celebrated American Silver Eagle series, this coin continues to captivate the hearts of collectors, symbolizing the enduring values of liberty and hope.
