The United States Mint introduced the Burnished Silver Eagle coin in 2006 as the first major addition to the existing American Eagle coins. The burnished coin was initially popular out of the gate, but a two-year hiatus in production hurt demand for the coin and all issues from 2011 have had markedly lower demand figures.
Burnished Silver American Eagle coins were not struck in 2009 or 2010. As the US Mint grappled with unprecedented demand for bullion Silver Eagles, all available silver blanks were diverted to the production of that version of the coin. The US Mint is legally obligated to ensure enough bullion Silver Eagles are struck to meet demand.
On the obverse side of 2018 Burnished Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Walking Liberty. This iconic design depicts Liberty walking from right to left across the coin in pursuit of the setting sun. The imagery is meant to reflect the nation’s drive toward a brighter future.
The reverse face of 2018-W 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagles includes the famous heraldic eagle of the United States. The national symbol of America, the bald eagle sits behind the national heraldic shield and clutches arrows in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other talon. Above its head is a cluster of 13 stars in a triangular shape.
These 2018-W 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagles are available in perfect condition from the PCGS. The PCGS issues the unique SP70 grade to coins with distinct visual brilliance, as well as full, original mint luster. These coins also have no detracting flaws of any kind.
