2017 BIRD OF PREY

Coins | Longstrider

Today I have a coin I received as a gift and a test. Below is my example of a 2017 Australian Wedged-Tailed Eagle. I very nice birthday gift. It was a test to see how a MS 70 NGC coin looked in their black holder. I think the silver coin shows up nicely. Personal reference. Besides everything else it has going for it, the NGC slab is hand signed by John Mercanti, our former 12th Chief engraver at the US Mint. Among other things he designed the reverse of the American Silver and Platinum Eagle. The slab also has a special Australian Label, if you are into that, it also has a nice First Day of Issue designation.

ERROR SILVER AMERICAN EAGLE

Coins | Longstrider

Here I have a coin that I originally bought as an investment coin. I have since fallen in love with it and hope to keep it. As you can see, it's 2008 W Silver Eagle with a Reverse of 2007. It also happens to be a MS 70 Early Release. It has a very limited run. It's estimated that only 47,000 made their way out of the mint before the mistake was discovered. The difference being the reverse dies of 2007 and earlier have a plain U in UNITED. Modified dies of 2008 and later have a small serif at the bottom right of the U. It stands out if you know what you are looking for but you have to be looking for it.
