This 2010-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle is offered with a special First Strike Label and a grade of PR70 from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Containing 1 troy oz of 99.9% pure silver, this bullion coin boasts the highest silver content of any U.S. Mint coin. Its DCAM designation refers to its Deep Cameo, which renders its details magnificently frosted and gives the field a mirror-like contrast to the relief. The W mint mark located on the reverse places its origin at the West Point facility of the United States Mint where the coin was struck.
This coin features the Walking Liberty design of Albert A. Weinman. The obverse depicts Lady Liberty moving east toward the rising sun with her right arm extended, and oak branches held in her left. The word "LIBERTY" spreads along the top rim. The heraldic eagle of the Great Seal appears on the reverse. Thirteen stars, arranged in an inverted triangle, hover above the eagle's head.
As American Silver Eagles continue to increase in popularity and gain international cachet, PR70 graded examples of the Silver Eagle like this 2010-W are only bound to become harder and harder to find. Buy yours from Gainesville Coins before they run out.
