For three decades, bullion investors as well as coin collectors have made the American Silver Eagle by far the most popular silver coin in the world. If you're looking for a flawless example of this beloved coin, consider the 2016 American Silver Eagle PCGS MS70 First Strike. These coins received a perfect grade, MS70, from the expert staff at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS)! In addition to being legal tender with a face value of 1 Dollar, each of these .999 fine silver coins contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver. As "First Strike" coins, PCGS received the coins for grading within 30 days of being minted.
A.A. Weinman's classic Walking Liberty design graces the obverse. Miss Liberty is draped in the American flag, striding toward the rising sun in the east with her arm outstretched. She carries branches of oak and laurel in her other arm. The legend "LIBERTY" stretches across the top half of the rim, with the year-date "2016" appearing beneath Liberty's foot. The motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" is placed in the bottom-right portion of the field.
The reverse design uses John Mercanti's heraldic eagle. Thirteen stars hover above the eagle's head in an inverted triangle, with the issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" inscribed along the top rim above. An unsupported shield covers the eagle's breast as it holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. A banner clasped in the eagle's beak reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The bottom rim bears the inscriptions "1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR," indicating the weight and denomination.
Not only does this 2016 American Silver Eagle PCGS MS70 First Strike offer the trusted .999 fine silver the Silver Eagle is known for, guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, but it also has added collectible appeal by virtue of its perfect MS70 grade.
