The first major milestone celebrated by the United States Mint in the Silver American Eagle series came in 2006. Originally introduced in 1986, 2006 marked the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle coin series. The US Mint celebrated in grand fashion, introducing a new version and striking celebratory coins to mark the moment. Today, the 2006 Proof Silver American Eagle is available from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • There were 1,092,477 proof coins struck in 2006!
  • 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Silver American Eagle!
  • Arrives in a commemorative box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Bears a face value of $1 (USD) backed by the federal government.
  • Includes a “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint.

In 2006, the United States Mint took two major steps to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its beloved American Eagle program, which included both these Silver American Eagles and the Gold Eagle coin.

The first major move was to introduce a brand-new version of the coin. The burnished American Eagle is a high-end proof product with special coining processes that result in a visually stunning product.

Additionally, the US Mint struck a special 2006-P Reverse Proof coin at the Philadelphia Mint. These unique reverse proof specimens were available only in a 3-coin set celebrating the 20th anniversary, which also included a regular proof coin and one of the new uncirculated products.

2006-W Proof Silver American Eagle production surged by 200,000 coins from the previous year. This figure stands today as the second-highest mintage in Proof Silver American Eagle history behind only the 1987 coins. Total mintage in 2006 nearly set a new record, at the time, for Silver American Eagle coins. The previous high was 12.3 million in 1987, while 2006 saw a mintage of 12.2 million.

The obverse side continues to feature Walking Liberty from Adolph A. Weinman, which was created in 1916 for use on the nation’s half-dollar coin. Meanwhile, the reverse bears John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle design created exclusively for the Silver American Eagle. Mercanti was Chief Engraver of the United States Mint in 1986 when he designed this modern heraldic eagle.
