You can own one of the coin collecting community's favorites with the 2016(W) American Silver Eagle NGC MS70 Early Releases - Statue of Liberty Tag! In addition to receiving a perfect grade of MS70 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), these coins also come with the collectible Statue of Liberty label and the special designation "Early Releases," which indicates that the coin was received for grading within 30 days of being issued. The (W) on the label certifies that these Silver Eagles were struck at the West Point Mint. Since regular bullion Silver Eagles carry no mint mark, the only way to determine the place of mintage is the straps across a sealed "monster box." Each Silver Eagle is legal tender with a 1 Dollar face value, 1 troy ounce in actual silver weight (ASW), and is struck from .999 fine silver.
On the obverse, Lady Liberty is depicted striding toward the rising sun in the east, a classic design created by Adolph Weinman known as "Walking Liberty," originally created for the half dollar in 1916. The year of issue "2016" is placed at the bottom rim, while "IN GOD WE TRUST" appears to Miss Liberty's right. "LIBERTY" curls around the top half of the rim. The coin's edge is reeded.
The reverse design, created by former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, shows a bald eagle in heraldic pose with its wings spread. Thirteen stars are arranged in an inverted triangle above the eagle's head. A ribbon in its beak bears the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The issuing nation "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is found along the top rim. The bottom rim includes both the denomination and the coin's specifications, reading "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR."
The Silver Eagle continues to be one of the world's most popular silver coins for both investors and collectors. In 2016, it celebrates its 30th anniversary.
