The 2012-S Silver American Eagle release included two silver coins for collectors. The coins were initially sold together in a two-coin set commemorating the 75th anniversary of the completion of the modern San Francisco Mint facility. The set included a traditional Proof Silver Eagle and these Reverse Proof Silver Eagles. A reverse proof coin has mirrored design elements overlaying frosted background fields. Both coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint.
On the obverse of the 2012-S 1 oz Reverse Proof Silver American Eagle is a depiction of Walking Liberty. Her figure is shown in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon with her right hand outstretched toward the sun and her left hand carrying branches of oak and laurel.
The reverse face of 2012-S Reverse Proof Silver Eagles includes the modern heraldic eagle of the United States. Designed for this release by John Mercanti, the image includes a front-facing eagle clutching the arrows of war and olive branch of peace while boasting the US heraldic shield on its chest. There is also a triangular cluster of 13 stars above the head of the eagle.
