When the United States Mint issues Congratulations Set coins, each one is individually packaged in a “Congratulations” presentation card. The bi-fold card is designed for gift-giving on birthdays, for weddings, and for anniversaries. The cards available in this listing come from the 2021 Proof Silver Eagle 35th Anniversary Congratulations Set, a release with just 39,997 coins available.
All of these 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle 35th Anniversary Congratulations Set pieces earned a perfect grade. Each coin is housed in an NGC protective plastic slab and not the original Congratulations Set card. The PF70 grade identifies each coin as a perfect specimen that has full, original mint luster and presents with no detracting flaws.
Additionally, these coins earned Ultra-Cameo and First Release designations. UCAM labels are for proof coins that have strong, frosted designs over deeply-mirrored, clear fields. The First Release label indicates a coin that was received by the NGC for grading within 30 days of its initial release by the US Mint.
On the obverse of 2021-W Proof Silver Eagles is the Walking Liberty design. The image of Walking Liberty is considered one of the two greatest designs in American coining history. The design shows Liberty in left-profile relief walking toward the sun as it rises over a mountain peak in the distance.
The reverse side of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle from the 35th Anniversary Congratulations Set features the heraldic eagle. Featuring for the final time in this series, it was designed in 1986 by John Mercanti and depicts a front-facing eagle with the US national shield in front of its figure and 13 stars over its head. The bird clutches the olive branch of peace and the arrows of war.
