The American Eagle Silver Coin Program has been one of the United States Mint’s most popular programs. Following our tradition of offering special, American Eagle coin sets, we are pleased to present the 2013 American Eagle West Point Two-Coin Silver Set, an exquisite collection that captures the essence and beauty of these cherished coins.
This set – one American Eagle Silver Reverse Proof Coin and one enhanced American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin minted at the United States Mint at West Point – is a testament to the fine, exacting craftsmanship that has been a United States Mint hallmark since 1792.
Each of the coins in this elegant two-coin set has special features. The proof coin features a “reverse proof” finish. Reversing the mirror-like background finish of a traditional proof coin and applying it to the design elements of the coin achieves a magnificent contrast.
The uncirculated coin features enhancements that are unusual for an uncirculated coin. On the obverse, the mountains, the red stripes and blue parts of the United States flag, the year, and Liberty’s sandals have an uncirculated finish. The remaining elements and lettering on the obverse have the heavy frosted finish. On the reverse of the coin, the ribbon in the eagle’s beak, the arrows and olive branch, the alternating stripes in the shield and the border around the shield have an uncirculated finish. The lettering and other design elements on the reverse have the heavy frosted finish.
The fields on both sides of the coin have the light frosted finish. All these enhancements – unique to the American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin in this set – add sharp definition to the designs.
The coins are encapsulated and packaged in a single custom-designed, highly polished, blue lacquered hardwood presentation case and are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
