Silver American Eagle coins were introduced in 1986 following passage of the Liberty Coin Act in 1985. Each coin struck in the series uses only silver sourced from within the United States. Initial stores for the program came from the Defense National Stockpile, while a 2002 act of Congress enabled the Treasury Department to purchase silver on the open market to continue the program.
Each of these 2015 1 oz. Silver American Eagles has a PR70 grade from the PCGS. These coins are considered perfectly struck proof coins, and were first graded at the Florida United Numismatists (FUN) Show in Orlando. With a DCAM, or deep cameo, designation, the coins feature a strong, frosted finish on a design which is set against a deeply mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse side of each coin is Adolph A. Weinman’s depiction of Walking Liberty. First featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar (1916-1947), Lady Liberty is visible walking toward the setting sun with an American flag draped over her shoulders. The reverse side features John Mercanti’s image of the heraldic eagle. The highlight of the design is the 13 stars located over the eagle’s head, representing the original American Colonies.
All Silver American Eagle coins are struck by the United States Mint at its San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint facilities. The proof coins in the series are all struck at the West Point Mint.
