The obverse design features a modern rendition of Adolph A. Weinman's classic Lady Liberty and the reverse features a heraldic eagle with a shield. The reverse was designed by legendary coin designer and the 12th Chief Engraver of the U. Mint audit discovered an unsold hoard of 2016 W 30th Anniversary Lettered Edge Proof Silver Eagles!
183,781 of these 30th Anniversary Proof Silver Eagles. Typically when a hoard like this is found by the mint the coins are simply melted and the packaging destroyed. Mint decided to sell them!
The significance of this event has not gone unnoticed by the major grading companies as both NGC & PCGS have created special designations for the Silver Eagles discovered in this hoard just as they did for the GSA Morgan's nearly 50 years ago! In addition, the label has been hand-signed by the 12th United States Mint Chief Engraver and the designer of the Silver Eagle reverse, John Mercanti!
