In 1986, the US Mint resurrected the beloved Walking Liberty half dollar design to grace the obverse of every silver eagle ever made. Unlike other bullion coin collections, the American Silver Eagle stays true to tradition and doesn't change its front or back design. Collectors and investors have educated themselves, through the years, of the sister series minted alongside the BU American Silver Eagles. The Proof Silver Eagles are more limited in availability, since their lustrous proof finish is more expensive and takes longer to produce. The lower mintages of the Proof Silver Eagles gives enough reason for serious investors to start collecting these gems. The 1986 Proof Silver Eagle has the highest mintage of the series and can easily be located to begin your new silver coin collection!
Your Certified Proof Silver Eagle PF69 1986 has been graded by one of the top grading agencies in the US, NGC, and has earned the grade of PF69. The flawless mirror-like finish can be admired from both the obverse and reverse side of the certified coin holder. The reverse reveals the US Coat of Arms; an eagle with wings sprawled out containing the banner labeled with "E pluribus unum," across the feathers. A large shield is also protecting the eagle and each of the eagle's talons are holding something symbolic. The right one is holding an olive branch to represent peace while the left one is holding arrows to represent the original 13 colonies. The reverse also bears the coin's weight and purity for validity reasons. The Lady Liberty walks gracefully across the obverse, with the rising sun encroaching behind her. The Lady's garb is a simple loose-fitting robe with an American flag draped over her narrow shoulders. The words, "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the coin's date of mintage are also stamped on the obverse.
