On March 23, 2017, the U.S. Mint released the proof edition of the 2017 Silver Eagle. The coin, struck in 99.9% pure silver and containing one ounce of silver, is the highest quality Silver Eagle made by the U.S. Mint.
And now, you can own one of the very first proof Silver Eagles of the year! What’s more, the coin is certified and graded by ANACS – America’s oldest coin grading service – as perfect Proof 70 (PR70). All coins are graded on a 70-point scale, and “PR70” is the highest grade possible for a proof coin.
In addition, a small number of perfect PR70 coins have also been awarded the rare distinction of “DCAM” – meaning they are also “Deep Cameo.” This extra mark of quality refers to the beauty and depth of the strike, but just a fraction of all coins can achieve this high level of beauty. As a result, a PR70 DCAM coin is literally the best of the best!
It is impossible to find a better coin, but supplies are extremely limited. Each coin is encased in the custom ANACS holder with a unique hologram label created exclusively for the Franklin Mint.
This is also the perfect time to pick up the first examples of other “perfect” 2017 bullion coins, also graded and certified by ANACS:
- 2017 MS70 Silver Eagle. The Brilliant Uncirculated edition of the Silver Eagle is the world’s most popular silver bullion coin, but only a few will ever be graded as perfect MS70. Many collectors order both the Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated coins for a magnificent matching set.
- 2017 PR70 DCAM Gold Eagle. The matching Proof 70 Deep Cameo Gold Eagle!
- 2017 SP70 DCAM Canada Silver Maple Leaf. The one-ounce Silver Maple Leaf was the world’s first 99.99% silver bullion coin, and the 2017 edition includes special security features such as the micro-engraved maple leaf showing a microscopic “17.”
- 2017 MS70 China Silver Panda. The one-ounce Silver Panda is one of the world’s most popular silver bullion coins – and each year’s coin features a unique, one-year-only design showing a panda in its native habitat surrounded by bamboo.
All of these perfect 2017 coins are in short supply, and if past experience is any guide … they will sell out quickly. Order now, before they’re all gone!
