All 2016 Silver American Eagle coins in this product listing are considered perfect specimens by the PCGS. Coins with an MS70 certification have their full, original mint luster and lack any type of detracting flaw.
To qualify as a First Day of Issue coin from the PCGS, these products had to arrive at the PCGS depository either within 24 hours of the release date set by the United States Mint, or within 24 hours of the postmark on the shipment from the mint. The Gold Foil Label in the slab packaging identifies each coin as a First Day of Issue product.
The Silver American Eagle coin debuted in 1986 as the official silver bullion product of the nation. Originally available only in bullion and proof, a burnished version was introduced in 2006 as part of the US Mint’s 20th anniversary celebration for the coins.
On the obverse face you’ll find the popular Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. The reverse features the heraldic eagle designed by then-US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, who retired from his post in 2010.
All Silver American Eagle coins are now produced at the West Point Mint, identified by the “W” mint mark. Previous production took place at the San Francisco Mint and Philadelphia Mint as well.
