General Details

Of all the Silver American Eagles struck by the US Mint every year, only a tiny fraction are Proof Silver American Eagles. Just like their uncirculated counterparts, Proof Silver Eagle coins are 1 ounce .999 fine US government guaranteed silver coins featuring the infamous Silver Eagle design in an even more beautiful finish.

History of the Proof Silver American Eagle

The Silver American Eagle was designed by Adolph A. Weinman displaying Lady Liberty draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises in the background. On the obverse, is heraldic eagle below 13 small stars, representing the 13 original colonies.

The first Proof Silver Eagles were first struck in 1986, the same year the first Uncirculated Silver Eagle was struck. However, the US Mint’s practice of minting proof silver coins is nothing new. The first US silver coins that are universally agreed to be proof strikes date back to 1817. The Smithsonian museum holds a collection of Proof Silver Coins dating back to 1818. Just like the Proof Silver Coins of today, these early 19th century Proof Silver Coins used dyes and multiple strike techniques to create a beautiful mirror like finish.

About the Proof Silver American Eagle

This special coin comes packaged in the US Mint issued box and with a Certificate of Authenticity. The coin bears the same one dollar face denomination at its bullion counterparts.

Proof Silver Eagles are struck multiple times on specially prepared planchets and use special dyes to beautiful mirror-like finish. The coin truly is a marvel of craftsmanship stuck using an extremely precise and time and slow minting process. The velvet US Mint Box that come with every Proof Silver Eagle is a perfect display setting for the beautiful coin. Proof Silver Eagles have attracted collectors as well as investors since they were first struck by the US Mint.

The Proof Silver Eagle is actually one of three variants of the globally popular Silver American Eagle: bullion (uncirculated), proof, and burnished. The bullion and proof versions have been around since 1986 and the burnished variant first was launched much more recently in 2006.

Even though they are more costly, many collectors and even some investors prefer to buy Proof American Silver Eagles in original United States Mint Boxes, complete with a Certificate of Authenticity. These products are shipped as received from the United States Mint. The Mint Box is worthy of making the display case, making it easier to showcase your purchases.
