American minting history is full of coins that caught the eye of numismatics and average citizens.

Although the Silver American Eagle is a modern coin, it features an obverse design that evokes memories of the nation’s Golden Age of minting. Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. Since 1986, the Silver American Eagle has gained a level of popularity that is on par with iconic coins such as the Morgan Silver Dollar.
Each of these 2015 1 oz. Silver American Eagles has a PR70 grade from the PCGS, indicating that each one is considered a perfectly struck proof coin. Coins with a deep cameo, or DCAM, designation have a strong, frosted finish on the design, which is set against a background field that is deeply mirrored and clear. Included in the sealed packaging of this coin is an Edmond Moy Label. Moy was the 38th Director of the US Mint, and his name and signature are included on the label.
On the obverse side is Weinman’s Walking Liberty depiction. In the image, Lady Liberty is visible walking toward the setting sun with the American flag draped over her shoulders. The reverse side bears John Mercanti’s depiction of the heraldic eagle. Mercanti, the US Mint’s chief engraver, designed the image in 1986 specifically for use on this coin.
The United States Mint uses its San Francisco, Philadelphia, and West Point Mint facilities to produce all Silver American Eagle coins. The proof coins in the series are all struck at the West Point Mint.
