The first major milestone celebrated by the United States Mint for its popular American Eagle coin program. In 2006, the US Mint pulled out all the stops to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle coins, and that included new additions and special one-time strikings. The 2006-P Reverse Proof Silver American Eagle is available today as a perfect specimen on Silver.com.

For the first time since 2000, the Philadelphia Mint participated in the production of Proof Silver American Eagle coins. While the US Mint was also striking Proof Silver American Eagles this year at West Point, these Philadelphia Mint proof were struck in brilliant reverse proof.
The 2006-P Reverse Proof Silver American Eagle has the ultra-cameo designation and its requisite, contrasting matte and mirrored finishes. However, as a reverse proof the strong, frosted field is featured in the coin’s background, while the design sets have a deeply-mirrored, clear finish.
All 2006-P Reverse Proof Silver American Eagle coins were struck and released in the 20th Anniversary Silver Eagle set, which also featured standard W Proof Silver American Eagles and the all-new W Uncirculated Silver American Eagle. These coins were never available originally for individual purchase.
As a PF70 coin, the NGC has labeled these 2006-P Reverse Proof Silver American Eagle coins as perfect specimens. These coins have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws anywhere on the surfaces.
On the obverse is the timeless Walking Liberty image from Adolph A. Weinman, as originally used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947. The heraldic eagle of the United States has featured on countless coins, crests, and seals dating back to 1794. This depiction is a modern version from then-US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, who created it in 1986.
