2022 W Burnished Gold & Silver Eagles – Advance Release Michael Castle

New U.S. Mint Release – Burnished Gold & Silver Eagles
 
New NGC Certified Congressional Series Labels honoring the many contributions to numismatics made by the Honorable Mike Castle, who served nine terms as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
 
Burnished Gold & Silver Eagles have lower mintages than bullion and proof strike coins – Low mintage coins are coveted by collectors

The 2022 issues struck at the West Point Mint have the lowest Advance Release designated mintages of any U.S. coins

The Gold coin has a low authorized mintage of 9,000 coins and only 1,200 of them are eligible for Advance Release certification – Lowest Gold AR mintage

The Silver coin has a low authorized mintage of 160,000 coins and only 12,000 of them are eligible for Advance Release certification – Lowest Silver AR mintage

Both pieces are key dates in their series because 2022 is the first full year of production for coins with the popular new Type 2 designs

Silver Eagle holds the unique distinction of being the first-ever burnished Type 2 Silver Eagle

Both pieces are offered in perfect MS70 condition by NGC and are individually hand-signed by Michael Castle

Advance Release coins are graded ahead of and are more limited than First Day of Issue coins – AR is the most time-sensitive coin grading designation

The term Burnished coin refers to the method of manufacture and not the condition of a coin. The U.S. Mint uses specially prepared coin blanks to make burnished coins the coin blanks are hand-fed into adapted coining presses one at a time. The burnishing process gives the coins a soft, matte-like finish that is popular with collectors. Burnished coins have a mintmark identifying their production facility. The West Point Mint is the primary facility for burnished coins.

 

The Grade

The Sheldon numeric grading scale of 1 to 70 identifies the condition of a coin. To achieve the top grade of 70, a coin must have no post-production imperfections under magnification. Eye appeal is one of the most important factors in coin collecting and this is why collectors of modern coins (issued after 1982), seek coins certified in perfect 70 condition.
