Silver American Eagle coins were struck in bullion and proof for 20 years before the United States Mint made any changes or additions to the series. While all coins are struck using silver sourced from within the US, featuring the same obverse and reverse designs each year, the burnished coin represented a fresh breeze in the program.
These 2007-W Burnished Silver American Eagles earned the highest possible grade from the NGC. Coins with a perfect grade maintain their full, original luster for mint and date, and have no blemishes, contact marks, or hairlines on the coin’s surface.
On the obverse side of each coin is the image of Lady Liberty, known as Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, this image dates back to the Golden Age of American coining. John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle, created specifically for the Silver American Eagle series, graces the reverse.
All Burnished Silver American Eagles are struck by the United States Mint using a unique process. Burnished blanks, also known as planchets, are hand loaded into the coining press in the New York facility, and struck multiple times with a die cast to create the distinctive appearance of these coins.
