1997 was the start of a long road back to glory for the Silver American Eagle coin series. While the bullion coins rebounded in 1997, the proof coins sank again in mintage. Overall production was up by 600,000 coins as the Silver American Eagle began a six-year stretch of annual growth in mintage. Today, the 1997-P Proof Silver American Eagle coin is available from Silver.com in perfect condition.

Coin Highlights:

  • Only 1,380 coins exist with this certification and condition!
  • 12th annual production of Proof Silver American Eagle coins!
  • Ships in a plastic slab to protect the coin’s perfect condition.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Face value of $1 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • Earned a PR70 grade from the Professional Coin Grading Service.
  • Available with a DCAM finish.
  • Features Walking Liberty on the obverse.
  • Heraldic eagle of the United States on the reverse.
  • Bears the “P” mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint.

The 1997 Proof Silver American Eagle had the third lowest mintage in program history at 435,369 coins in total. Of those coins, some 5,000 were included in the Impressions of Liberty Set. This limited-edition set from the United States Mint included three one-ounce coins, available in gold, silver, and platinum.

Impressions of Liberty Coin sets were available in 1997 in celebration of the launch of the US Mint’s all-new Platinum American Eagle coin. Silver price per oz averaged a lower value throughout 1997 than the year before, hovering around $4.91 per ounce on average. However, late in the year the price shot about $6.00 per ounce.

The 1997-P Proof Silver American Eagle coins available in this product listing have PR70 grades from the PCGS. Considered perfect specimens, these coins have full, original luster from the mint and bear no detracting flaws of any kind.

Coins with a DCAM, or deep-cameo, finish are unique. The design set’s frosted finish gives it the appearance of floating above the surface of the coin, which has a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.

The United States Mint produced these coins at the Philadelphia Mint, with a maximum mintage set at 500,000 for the year. As a result of low sales, the US Mint did not achieve a sellout of the Silver American Eagle proof in 1997.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
