When silver bullion coins, or any other bullion coins, are graded by the NGC or PCGS the item is issued a numeric grade based on its condition. Those numeric grades fall somewhere on the Sheldon numeric scale, a 1-70 grading system that uses 1 as the lowest grade for coins that are near-cull in terms of condition. The 70 grade is reserved for coins that are considered perfect specimens.
All of the 2020 1 oz Silver American Eagles available here have Mint State 69 certifications from the PCGS. MS69 coins are considered near-perfect and come with full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines found only outside of the primary design elements.
On the obverse side of 2020 Silver American Eagles, you will find the historic vision of Liberty created by Adolph A. Weinman. This design was created in 1916 and featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947. The image captures Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks from right to left across the design field toward the sun on the horizon near a mountain peak.
The reverse face of 2020 1 oz Silver American Eagles comes with the heraldic eagle of the United States. Modified by John Mercanti in 1986 for the Silver American Eagle, the heraldic eagle of the United States comes with a national shield on the chest of the eagle, arrows in one talon, an olive branch in the other, and a triangular cluster of 13 stars above its head. The stars represent the 13 colonies that rebelled against Great Britain and formed the United States of America after the Revolutionary War.
