Each of the 2017 Proof Silver American Eagles for sale in this listing is a near-perfect proof specimen according to the NGC. Coins with a PF69 grade have full, original mint luster, but also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in scope to minuscule hairlines or contact marks, and found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
The Ultra-cameo, or UCAM designation is reserved for proof coins with an especially beautiful finish. Coins in this condition exhibit strong, frosted matte finishes on the design features and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
For the 2017 launch, Proof Silver American Eagle coins jumped out to an impressive first-day sales total of 233,000 coins. The Proof Silver American Eagle coin is popular with each new release because of its beautiful design and the excellent work of the United States Mint in their production.
On the obverse face of the 2017 Proof Silver American Eagle you’ll find the Walking Liberty image. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman during a period of revitalization in American coinage, the design appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse side of all Silver American Eagle coins features the heraldic eagle of the United States. The design includes an American bald eagle set behind the national heraldic shield, and it is clutching arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. There are 13 stars above its head, indicative of the original colonies.
