First issued in 1986 the American Silver Eagle has become far and away the most collected modern silver coin in the World! Over the years, several different types of Silver Eagles have been struck (Mint State, Proof, Burnished, Reverse Proof & Enhanced) but one thing that has remained unchanged has been the design. For the first time in 35 years, the classic American Silver Eagle was updated with an enhanced obverse design and a brand new reverse design in 2021!
The classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman is still featured on the obverse of the Type 2 Silver Eagle. However, thanks to technological advancements in the design and minting process, Liberty now encompasses some of Weinman's original details that were not previously possible! The new reverse was designed by the artist Emily Damstra and sculpted by U.It features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to it's nest. Also included in the reverse design are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "1 OZ FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR".
Has been hand signed by the sculptor of the new Type 2 reverse design, Michael Gaudioso. For more information regarding NGCX and the new grading 10 point grading scale see below which is copy/pasted directly from NGC's website. NGC is excited to introduce NGCX, the first 10-point grading scale for coins. The 10-point grading scale has long been the standard for most collectibles, including comic books, sports cards, trading cards and more.
Now, with NGCX, coin collecting will benefit from the same intuitive and approachable scale. For centuries, coins have been collected - for enjoyment, for study, as an investment and as a benchmark of achievement.In the late 1940s, a numeric scale of 1 to 70 was introduced by Dr. William Sheldon to describe the relative values of US one cent coins. The values quickly became irrelevant, but the grading scale stuck. NGC adopted the Sheldon grading scale when it was established in 1987, and it remains the industry standard to this day. Meanwhile, the collecting instinct has expanded to include comic books, sports cards, trading cards, video games and much more - the list continues to grow as new categories emerge, with collectors seeking to protect and preserve the things they love. These collectibles are virtually always evaluated on 10-point grading scales, which new collectors quickly recognize and readily understand. Each 10-point grading scale is precise and nuanced based on the collectible type.
The 70-point grading scale for coins isn't going anywhere. Rather, NGC recognized an opportunity to bring in new collectors to the hobby by wielding the power of X - NGCX - a 10-point grading scale for coins. The NGCX 10-point grading scale aligns with today's expectations for coin grading, and what it means to be the best. On the NGCX scale, 10 is the supreme grade, equivalent to a 70 on the traditional scale.
The subsequent grades cascade from 10, a criterion understood by all. For example, a coin graded NGCX Mint State or Proof 10 has no imperfections at 5x magnification, the same as a coin graded NGC Mint State or Proof 70.
Likewise, an NGCX Mint State or Proof 9.9 is the same as a coin graded NGC Mint State or Proof 69 - each a fully struck coin with nearly imperceptible imperfections. NGC is the world leader in third-party coin certification because of its constant innovation and collector focus, with NGCX being only the latest example. While there is no difference in quality between a grade on the 10-point scale and a grade on the 70-point scale, the difference for the hobby is exponential. New collectors now have a clear path to embrace coin collecting. ATTENTION: This is a PRE-SALE item.
