All Burnished Silver American Eagle coins are struck at the US Mint’s facility in West Point, New York. The program relies upon a variation of the proof production process to create a stunning burnished coin that is particularly popular among collectors. These coins were developed specifically for those looking to display or use coins in exhibition.
During production, each burnished blank is hand loaded in the coining press in New York and struck with a standard Silver American Eagle die cast. The blanks are struck numerous times to create the stunning finish found on these coins.
Each Burnished Silver American Eagle in this product listing has earned the highest possible grade from the PCGS. These coins have no detracting marks, flaws, or blemishes of any kind, and still maintain their full, original luster for the date and mint.
