The coin is being released during the ANA National Money Show in Phoenix. Special submission instructions must be followed. The Congratulations Set must be submitted in the sealed original Mint shipping box to receive the set designation. See the “Submission Instructions” section of this article.
NGC will offer the First Day of Issue, First Day — ANA and Phoenix ANA Releases designations for qualifying coins submitted to NGC at the ANA National Money Show, held in Phoenix from March 2-4. Special submission instructions must be followed. For regular submissions of these coins, click here.
The coin’s obverse features the classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, which was refreshed in 2021. 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. (2023-W Proof Silver Eagles certified with the NGC Michael Gaudioso Signature Label will be available through select retailers.)
To complement coins submitted at the show, NGC, the official grading service of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) since 1995, will offer an exclusive ANA certification label for qualifying coins. The label features the ANA logo and its Lamp of Knowledge member logo.
The NGC ANA label is available for coins that are purchased at the ANA show and submitted with the original Mint purchase receipt. The label is free by request when one of these designations is selected:
