The US Mint resurrected the beloved Walking Liberty half dollar design for the American Silver Eagle series. Unlike other bullion coin collections, the American Silver Eagle stays true to tradition and doesn't change its design, front or back, ever. Collectors and investors enjoy the aspect of consistency the American Silver Eagle series offers and the excellent quality that is delivered in easy accessible coins. The popularity of this series only increases with every year, making the American Silver Eagle collection among the best of bullion series. The Proof Silver Eagles also contain that beloved design with a little more flair than the BU coins. With only 435,350 proof coins minted in 1997, locating this proof coin can be quite difficult.
Your Certified Proof Silver Eagle PF69 1997 exhibits the "freshly minted" shine of a proof finish coin and that shine is protected by an airtight official NGC holder. NGC is a famous grading company that is well-know in the coin world for its outstanding packaging and even better grading standards. The obverse displays a well-known design that graced a US half dollar from 1916-1947. This beloved icon is known as the Walking Liberty and this patriotic design was first created by Adolph A. Weinman, an American sculptor who was born in Germany. Weinman's work is still sprinkled throughout the US since his designs are a part of American history. Another familiar design of his is the Mercury dime that is highly sought after for its silver content. The Walking Liberty gracefully poses on the obverse of the Silver Eagle, bearing the weight of the American flag draped around her shoulders and her arm carrying large branches. The obverse also bears the coin's date of mintage, "Liberty," and the famous saying, "In God We Trust." The reverse highlights the US National Seal, as well as 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies.
