The collectible version of the Silver American Eagle, the Proof Silver Eagle has impressive mintage figures for a collector series, but is dwarfed by the demand for the Brilliant Uncirculated coins in the collection.

When the 1992 Proof Silver Eagle was released, it marked the first time in the history of the series that mintage had fallen below 500,000 coins. The drop from 1991 was just over 13,000 coins, but was significantly down from 1990 by a figure of nearly 200,000 coins. Mintages began to fall in 1991 and would continue dropping through 1994. The 1992 release was also significant in that it was the last time the regular Proof Silver Eagle was struck at the San Francisco Mint. Production moved to the Philadelphia Mint in 1993.
All of these 1992-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles are available in near-perfect condition. The PCGS issues a PR69 grade to coins that have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of flaws that are acceptable at this grade include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin. A DCAM specimen is one that comes with strong, frosted design elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
On the obverse of 1992-S Proof Silver Eagles is an effigy of Liberty known as Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the image shows Liberty in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon as it crests a mountain.
The reverse face of 1992-S 1 oz Proof Silver Eagles comes with a modern vision of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Modernized for this series by John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, the design comes with a front-facing bald eagle clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
