Out of the merely 30,125 Proof Silver Eagles Minted at West Point in 1995, only 36 coins are known to have been certified as a PR70DCAM grade by the PCGS. Out of these 36 coins, we have managed to get a hold of only one and are pleased to be offering it up for sale!
These Proof American Silver Eagles were minted almost 20 years ago in 1995 at the West Point branch of the United States Mint. Only approximately 30,125 proof coins where minted at this facility in 1995, giving these particular pieces the lowest mintage in the whole Proof Silver Eagle series. Since the Silver American Eagle has been being produced in large quantities for just over 25 years, to have a coin with such a low mintage is quite astonishing. As these US Minted coins are one of the most popular in the world, it is no surprise that 1995-w PCGS PR70DCAM coins are one of the most sought after by serious collectors.
Why Are These Proof Silver Eagles So Rare?
Aside from the coin having an extremely low mintage, it also bears the distinguishing factor of having been graded by the PCGS and certified to be in its perfect, newly minted state. The company has certified this coin as being in a PR70 (Proof 70) condition with a deep cameo appearance, meaning that it has deeply frosted areas and lettering that contrast with mirror-like fields. Of the just over 30,000 proof coins minted at West Point in 1995, only 36 of them have the differentiation of being graded at this high level.
For the 10th year anniversary in 1995, a special issue 5 piece gold coin set was offered by the US Mint which contained a tenth, quarter, half, and one ounce Proof Gold Eagle. Included in this set as a bonus was the brand new 1995-W Proof Silver Eagle. Further adding to this coins allure is the fact that prior to 1995, Silver Eagle Proof coins were only minted in San Francisco and Philadelphia. In fact a majority of the proof coins from 1995 were minted in Philadelphia and bear the “P” mintmark. This makes the 1995-W Proof Coin the first one ever to be produced at West Point.
In 2013 one of the coins from this collection sold for just over $86,000! This set the record for the most expensive American Silver Eagle coin to ever be sold at auction. The coin has also made the “Top 50 Most Popular Modern Coins” by NGC and the top 100 list for the PCGS.
