Each of the 2017 Proof American Silver Eagle coins in this product listing is a perfect proof according to the PCGS. Coins with a PR70 grade from the PCGS have full, original mint luster and lack any detracting flaws on the surfaces. A First Strike coin is a product that arrived at the PCGS depository, or an authorized third-party location, within the first 30 days of the release date set by the United States Mint for 2016 products.
The DCAM designation of these coins highlights the unique beauty of these proof strikings. A deep-cameo coin has a strong, frosted finish to the design features of the coin and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. The contrasting visuals give the design the appearance of floating above the background of the coin.
On the obverse of all 2017 Proof American Silver Eagle coins you’ll find Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design. Created in 1916 for the nation’s half-dollar coin, the Walking Liberty design has been in use, unchanged, since 1986 on the American Silver Eagle coin series.
The reverse of all Proof American Silver Eagle coins features the heraldic eagle of the US. This design centers on the bald eagle sitting behind the nation’s heraldic shield, clutching the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other. Then-US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti created this design in 1986 as a refinement on the classic heraldic eagle imagery.
All 2016 Proof American Silver Eagle coins are a product of the United States Mint. While numerous facilities contribute to apr57 coin production, the proof coins are exclusively struck at the West Point Mint and bear a “W” mint mark.
