2016-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle - 30th Anniversary (w/Box & COA)



This one ounce 99.9% pure silver coin is the most popular silver bullion coin in the United States. Marking the 30th anniversary since the introduction of this stunning coin, the 2016 1 oz Silver American Eagle Proof Coin was issued with smooth edges containing lettering, being the first time when the US Mint changed its design elements.

The American Silver Eagle was released on November 24, 1986, by the US Mint. Since the first issuance of the coin 30 years ago, its design hasn’t changed, adopting one of the most powerful, graceful and majestic representative images of the Nation. On the obverse side of the coin is depicted the Walking Liberty image, used for half dollar coins from 1916 to 1947, and on the reverse side is showcased the iconic heraldic eagle. Over the last years, the popularity of this coin has significantly increased due to a higher demand for silver. The coins are issued in bullion, uncirculated and proof versions, the last ones being special coins struck multiple times to give them a unique mirror­-like finish.

Proof American Silver Eagles have been minted at the San Francisco facility of the US Mint from 1986 to 1992, carrying the “S” mintmark. Between 1993 and 2000, the proof coins were produced at the Philadelphia facility, having the “P” mintmark. Between 2001-­2008 and starting with 2010, the Proof American Silver Eagles are manufactured at the West Point facility, bearing the “W” mintmark. No Proof Silver Eagles were minted in 2009 because the high silver demand forced the mint to supply the blanks for the bullion coin. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the coin release, the 2016 1 oz Silver American Eagle Proof Coin was designed with a different edge: the mint changed it from reeded to smooth, containing engravings about the coin’s properties.

Main Coin Features:

  • Special proof coin with a mirror-like finish.
  • Comes with smooth edges with lettering and the West Point (W) mintmark.
  • Struck of 1 oz. of .999 pure silver.
  • Legal tender coin carrying a face value of $1.
  • Precious Metals IRA-eligible.
  • Sold in an attractive display case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Official silver bullion coin guaranteed by the US Government.
  • Obverse: Showcases the most beloved and prize worthy Walking Liberty design, courtesy of the American sculptor-engraver Adolph A. Weinman. This image was initially used for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, and it features the Lady Liberty as moving gracefully toward the sunlight, holding a laurel oak in her left hand as a symbol of the strength of our country. Her figure is enveloped by stripes and stars (the US flag), along with the inscriptions “Liberty”, “In God We Trust” and the mintage year.
  • Reverse: Depicts the image of the heraldic eagle. This design belongs to the sculptor-engraver John M. Mercanti and shows a majestic eagle, carrying a shield and holding arrows in its left talon and an olive branch in its right talon, symbolizing preparedness to defend America and desire for peace. The eagle also holds a banner in its beak with the words “E Pluribus Unum”. Above the eagle’s image are engraved the thirteen stars honoring the thirteen original colonies. On the coin’s rim are also inscribed the words “United States of America”, as well as the coin’s weight, purity and face value.
