A First Strike coin is a product that arrived at the PCGS depository, or an authorized third-party location, within the first 30 days of the release date set by the United States Mint for 2016 products.
The 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle marks the 30th anniversary of the coin program. For this year’s proof release, the US Mint is using its first-ever edge lettering in the series to mark the date with a special text.
On the obverse of all American Silver Eagle coins you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, it depicts Lady Liberty as she strides toward the setting sun as a symbol of the nation’s march toward a brighter future.
The reverse of the 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle coin bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design has been used in various iterations since 1794 on American coinage. This particular version was refined in 1986 by former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti specifically for release on American Silver Eagle coins.
All 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle coins are a product of the United States Mint. While numerous facilities contribute to apr57 coin production, the proof coins are exclusively struck at the West Point Mint and bear a “W” mint mark.
