The 2006 20th Anniversary Silver Eagle Three Coin Set is a must-have for collectors and enthusiasts alike. This set arrives in a commemorative display box, with a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) to ensure its legitimacy.
American Silver Eagles were first introduced in 1986, and this set honors the importance of the series. Inside the box, you’ll find three exquisite 1 oz coins, each with their own unique design and finish. Each coin features the same breathtaking rendition of Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty on the obverse and John Mercanti’s Heraldic Eagle of the United States on the reverse.
The first is a proof coin, which is struck multiple times using specially polished dies to create a sharp, mirror-like finish. This coin, along with the others, is crafted from one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
The second coin in the set is a reverse proof coin, which is only available in this set. Unlike a regular proof coin, the reverse proof has a frosted background mirrored finish on the design elements. The design elements are rendered in high relief, making them stand out in sharp contrast against the frosted background. This reverse proof coin was a one-time release for the set, making it a rare and valuable addition.
Last but not least, the third coin is a burnished coin, which was first introduced in this very set. The burnished finish gives the coin a distinct matte appearance, with a subtle hint of luster.
Each coin in the set is struck with exceptional precision, using the finest materials and craftsmanship. The proof and burnished Silver Eagles are minted at the West Point Mint and the reverse proof Silver Eagle was minted at the Philidelphia Mint.
This 2006 20th Anniversary Silver Eagle Three Coin Set is a true masterpiece of numismatic art. It celebrates the enduring legacy of the American Silver Eagle, and pays tribute to the rich history and tradition of the United States Mint. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting out, this set is a must-have addition to any collection.
