Investors have finally caught onto why the Certified American Silver Eagle collection is at the top of the list of silver bullion coins best sellers. Not only is the American Silver Eagle a highly sought after brilliant uncirculated coin, but it also contains a ton of history within its famous design. When a BU coin is sent into grading, it can receive a grade anywhere from MS60-MS70; MS70 is the highest grade a coin can receive. Your coin received the MS69 grade, which is an excellent grade at a very reasonable price.
Your 1997 American Silver Eagle MS69 exhibits the "freshly minted" shine of a brilliant uncirculated 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 reverse reveals the US seal, the coin's purity, and authenticity. 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."
