The PCGS certified First Strike MS70 2016 American Silver Eagle can now be purchased in Provident Metals’ collection of fine silver bullion products. Every 2016 American Silver Eagle is created at the US Mint with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver, and has been certified Mint State 70 by the PCGS. An MS70 grade indicates that the coin is in “mint perfect” condition. The label features the US Flag in the upper left corner, and “FIRST STRIKE” in gold colored ink. The label also features the text “2016”, “$1”, “PCGS MS70”, and “Silver Eagle – 30th Anniversary”.
The familiar obverse features the elegantly designed Lady Liberty walking toward a sunrise with her right arm outstretched, representing hope for a brighter future. In her left hand, she holds a bouquet of laurel and oak; the stars and stripes is draped across her shoulders. This design by Adolph A. Weinman is among the most beautiful in American coinage. “LIBERTY,” “2016” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” are inscribed.
John Mercanti designed the reverse, which features the US seal. The spread-winged bald eagle holds a banner in its beak that reads “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” while also holding arrows and an olive branch in its claws. Inscriptions of “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER” and “ONE DOLLAR,” along with 13 five-pointed stars, complete the design.
The United States Mint was instituted by the United States Congress in the late 1790s with the Coinage Act of 1792. The US Mint is responsible for the creation of all US legal tender bullion, such as the American Gold Eagle, and American Silver Eagle.
