The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) announcing that it will be offering special designations & labels for 2022-W American Eagle silver proof coins submitted for grading. The special designations and labels will include First Release designation as well Early Release for the coin and a special label for the Congratulations set which has the same coin.
Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) is celebrating the latest Silver Eagles by offering a variety of special designations and labels, including the NGC Early Releases and First Releases Labels as well as the West Point Mint Gold Star Label.
The coin’s obverse features the classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, which was refreshed in 2021. With advancements in the design and minting processes, the Silver Eagles now include more of Weinman’s original details.
The reverse, which was completely redesigned in 2021, displays an eagle as it approaches a landing. It was engraved by acclaimed medallic artist Michael Gaudioso, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. (2022-W Proof Silver Eagles certified with the NGC Michael Gaudioso Signature Label will be available through select retailers.)
