The year 2000 not only marked the beginning of a new century, it also marked new hopes, dreams, and maybe some fears. How many people can say they were alive at a turn of a new millennium? How do you mark such a time in history that is outside of your personal experience? Well, the Proof Silver Eagle may be exactly what you need! This flawless bullion coin not only contains one ounce of pure silver but it also carries so much history in its designs. From Lady Liberty to "E pluribus unum," to the Great Seal, the Proof Silver Eagle is a great way to remember where we have been, where we are, and where we are going as a nation. What is even better than this remembrance, is it have it in the palm of your hand!
Your 2000 Proof Silver Eagle sparkles with the perfect "mirrored" proof finish that is responsible for the premium on these coins. Your coin is packaged in its original mint packaging, including original box and COA. The "P" mintmark is also visible, on the coin, to show your coin was minted at the US Mint's sector in Philadelphia. 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. 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 Proof Silver Eagle series is the ideal way to hold onto the past, while preparing for the future.
