1995-W Proof American Silver Eagle "Gold Star Label" NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo
Beginning in 1986, 1995 was the 10th year of production for the Bullion Eagle Program. To celebrate this event, the U.S. Mint created a 5pc Proof Gold and Proof Silver Eagle 10th Anniversary Set. It included (1) each of the 1oz. Proof Silver American Eagle, 1 oz. $50 Proof Gold Eagle, 1/2 oz. $25 Proof Gold Eagle, 1/4 oz. $10 Proof Gold Eagle and the 1/10th oz. $5 Proof Gold Eagle. It was considered very pricey by 1995 standards and only 30,125 sets were minted. Many of the Proof Silver Eagles were "Mishandled" as no one knew at the time the future significance that this coin would have just a few years later due to it's extremely low mintage. Only a very small percentage of these coins have graded Proof 70 at NGC. Current NGC population reports show that barely 1% of the total Mintage have resulted in Proof 70 making this coin, when available, the "Must Have" of all Proof Silver Eagles.
