Even after thirty years, the American Silver Eagle remains a favorite among collectors. In fact, thanks to skyrocketing demand for silver bullion, it's more popular now than ever! Now you can add this 1-ounce silver coin to your collection with the 2016(W) American Silver Eagle NGC MS69 Early Releases with Statue of Liberty Tag. These .999 fine silver coins have been certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with a grade of MS69, just one point shy of perfect! Each coin comes in NGC's sonically sealed hard plastic holder with the special Statue of Liberty label. The "Early Releases" designation means that the coin was received for grading within 30 days of being issued by the mint. The (W) designation in the date is NGC's certification that this particular Silver Eagle was struck at the West Point Mint. Since bullion Silver Eagles carry no mintmark, the only way to tell if it was struck at West Point or San Francisco is from the printed straps that seal the 500-coin "monster boxes" that the coins are shipped in.
The obverse uses Adolph Weinman's classic 1916 design of Lady Liberty striding to the left. Her right arm is outstretched toward the rising sun while she carries oak boughs in her left arm. The legend "LIBERTY" stretches across the top half of the rim, with the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" positioned to the right. The year-date "2016" appears at the bottom rim. The edge is reeded.
The reverse shows John Mercanti's heraldic eagle design. With its wings spread, the eagle holds a banner in its beak that reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Thirteen stars hang above the eagle's head. It holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons, symbolizing America's preparedness for war but desire for peace. The specifications and denomination "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR" appear at the bottom rim, while the issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" runs along the top half of the rim.
Collectors are especially drawn to certified (graded) Silver Eagles that receive exceedingly high grades. Moreover, special labels and designations such as "Early Releases" add to the coin's collectible appeal.
