Proof Silver American Eagle coins at one point had a mintage limit in place each year. The US Mint placed low mintage limits, such as 500,000 annually, on the coins. Facing higher demand for silver in the 21st century, those limits have been removed and often the coins are struck to meet demand, though the Silver Eagle proof has never surpassed its introductory year level in 1986.
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.
All 2017 Proof Silver American Eagle coins in this listing have PR69 grades from the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster, but also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws such as minuscule hairlines. All flaws are found outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
The DCAM, or deep-cameo, designation on these coins is reserved for only the most beautiful proof coins. A DCAM coin features a strong, frosted matte finish on the design sets and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. The combined visual effect of these features is the impression of the design floating over the coin’s surface.
