A coin with an MS69 grade from the NGC is considered to be in near-perfect condition. The coins in this product listing still have their original luster for the date and mint, with no more than two detracting marks. The flaws are considered minor and are not visible within the primary visual areas of the coin’s surface.
On the obverse side is the image of Lady Liberty walking toward the setting sun. With one hand outstretched and the American flag over her shoulders, Walking Liberty represents America’s constant march toward a brighter future.
The heraldic eagle featured on the reverse side depicts a bald eagle behind a shield, clutching arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. These symbols represent the nation’s desire for peace, but its preparedness for war. The year of minting is always featured on the obverse side, while the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and face value are inscribed on the reverse.
The United States Mint produces the Silver American Eagle bullion coin at the San Francisco, Philadelphia, and West Point Mints. Generally speaking, the bullion coins do not carry mint marks to identify which facility produced each individual coin.
