FROM THE 2016 WEST POINT MINT - - - POP 310. OUTSTANDING 2016 W PROOF SLIVER EAGLE RARE PCGS TORCH PR70DCAM SIGNED BY MR THOMAS S. CLEVELAND - THIS BEAUTIFUL SILVER EAGLE IS PART OF THE UNITED STATES MINT ARTISTIC INFUSION PROGRAM - IT IS A LETTER EDGE WP MINT HOARD (2019) ONE DOLLAR SILVER COIN. The Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) is a program of the United States Mint, established in 2003, which invites American artists to create designs for U. Coins and medals, most notably the 50 State, DC - US Territories and America the Beautiful quarters - The goal of the AIP is to enrich and diversify the design of United States coins and medals by contracting a collection of artists with varying artistic skills and talents.
This 2016-W Proof Silver Eagle - Lettered Edge West Point Mint Hoard is no ordinary Silver Eagle due to the United State Mint surprise move in 2019. What made this unusual is that before the announcement the collecting community was unaware that the Mint was carrying such a large quantity of unsold stock of the 2016-W Proof, and typically leftover Silver Eagles, unsold at the end of the year, are removed from their packaging and melted down in a process known as "de-trashing".This move, by the mint, effectively raised the overall mintage of the issue by 30%. It's unclear whether more will be available, even to the collecting community. Thomas Cleveland is an American designer, illustrator and fine artist.
He served in the United States Mint's Artistic Infusion Program from 2004 until 2014. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Bullion\Silver\Coins". The seller is "smdcollectibles" and is located in this country: US.
