The Silver American Liberty Medal issued by the United States Mint in 2016 offered two options to collectors. Both of the medals were produced in proof with frosted design elements overlaying mirrored design fields. One of those silver medals was produced at the San Francisco Mint with an “S” mint mark, while these particular silver medals were struck by the West Point Mint with a “W” mint mark.
These 2016 Proof Silver American Liberty Medals are available with the same design the United States Mint introduced one year earlier. The designs on both sides of the silver medals originated on the 2015 $100 American Gold Liberty Coin. Unlike those gold coins, these silver medals are not legal tender and have no denomination assigned.
The obverse of the 2016-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Liberty Medal is a depiction of a young Lady Liberty. She stands in front-facing relief with a torch in her right hand that is lit with flames and a large American flag on a flagpole in her left hand. This design was created by Justin Kunz and Phebe Hemphill.
On the reverse face of 2016-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Liberty Medals, you will find an image of the American bald eagle. Reminiscent of many older circulation designs, this image shows the bald eagle in flight with its wings stretched out as it glides along with its talons pulled up under its body as it clutches an olive branch. This design was created by Paul C. Balan and Don Everhart.
These 2016-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Liberty Medals are available to you with a protective plastic capsule. The medal and its capsule are housed inside of a blue US Mint presentation case and ship inside of a blue, US Mint shipper. Each product comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
