All 2016 Proof Silver American Eagle coins offered in this product listing have a perfect grade from the NGC. Coins in PF70 condition exhibit full, original mint luster and bear no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas.
Coins with a UCAM, or Ultra-cameo, designation have a brilliant visual appearance. The strong, frosted matte finish of the design set is perfectly contrasted by the deeply-mirrored, clear background field that creates the illusion of the design floating off the coin’s surface.
2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Silver American Eagle coin series, and the United States Mint is celebrating by making a change to its Proof Silver American Eagle for the first time ever. The obverse and reverse faces remain the same, but unique edge lettering is being used for the first time with text denoting the 30th Anniversary celebration.
On the obverse face of the 2016 Proof Silver American Eagle you’ll find the Walking Liberty image. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman during a period of revitalization in American coinage, the design appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse side of all Silver American Eagle coins features the heraldic eagle of the United States. The design includes an American bald eagle set behind the national heraldic shield, and it is clutching arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. There are 13 stars above its head, indicative of the original colonies.
All Proof Silver American Eagle coins are a product of the United States Mint, and are struck by the West Point Mint facility. A small “W” mint mark on the reverse face indicates the West Point Mint as the facility of origin.
