The American Silver Eagle coin was introduced in 1986 as the official silver apr57 coin of the United States. Originally available only in apr57 and proof, the program expanded in 2006 to include the regular production of a burnished coin. Although the burnished coin is also aimed toward the attention of collectors, the proof remains the more popular choice among the two.
All 2017 Proof American Silver Eagles in this listing have PR69 grades from the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster, but also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws such as minuscule hairlines. All flaws are found outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
First Strike coins are those which arrive at the PCGS or an approved third-party depository for certification within the initial 30-day release window as set by the United States Mint. The DCAM, or deep-cameo, designation on these coins highlights the strong, frosted matte finish on the design sets and the deeply-mirrored, clear background field of the coin.
On the obverse of all American Silver Eagle coins you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, it depicts Lady Liberty as she strides toward the setting sun as a symbol of the nation’s march toward a brighter future.
The reverse of the Proof American Silver Eagle coin bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design has been used in various iterations since 1794 on American coinage. This particular version was refined in 1986 by former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti specifically for release on American Silver Eagle coins.
