The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) that it will be offering special labels and designations for the upcoming 2022-W American Eagle Burnished coin. The uncirculated burnished coin will be offered by the United States Mint starting June 1, 2022 at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific.

The US Mint has announced that the 2022-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle will be available for sale on June 1, 2022. Commonly referred to as the Burnished Silver Eagle, this year’s issue has a limited mintage of only 160,000 coins.

To accompany the certified coins, Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) is offering a variety of special labels, including the West Point Mint Gold Star label and the popular NGC Early Releases and First Releases labels.

Burnished American Silver Eagles were created as collector versions of the US Mint’s Bullion Silver Eagles. With a matte finish, these burnished coins depict the same design as the bullion coins — Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty on the obverse and an eagle on the reverse.

With advancements in technology, the Silver Eagles’ design more closely resembles Weinman’s original vision and includes his artist mark. In addition, the reed variation along the edge provides higher security against counterfeiting.

The reverse shows an eagle coming in for a landing, an exciting design that was first introduced in 2021. It was engraved by acclaimed medallic artist Michael Gaudioso, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. The 2022-W Uncirculated Silver Eagles certified with the NGC Michael Gaudioso Signature Label will be available through select retailers.
