Proof Silver Eagle coins have seen demand ebb and flow over the years. As is the case with many proof coins, the first year of issue is the most collectible and often enjoys the highest mintage figure. The 1986 Proof Silver Eagle remains the coin with the highest mintage at 1.446 million coins.
Though production generally fell through the late 1980s and 1990s, the Proof Silver Eagle has risen in demand at various points in recent history to near-record levels. For the 20th anniversary of the series, the 2006 coin had a mintage of 1.092 million. Mintage has neared one million coins three other times in recent history: 2011, 2013, and 2014.
All 2018 Proof Silver American Eagle coins are available to you today in perfect condition. The PCGS grades a coin PR70 when it features full, original mint luster and bears no detracting flaws of any kind. First Strike is a designation for coins that arrive for certification within the first 30 days of the release date set by the United States Mint for its 2018 Silver Eagles.
Deep-cameo, or DCAM, coins have a stunning combination of visual features. The design elements have strong, frosted finishes that combine impressively with the deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
The obverse of all Proof Silver American Eagle coins features the Walking Liberty design. Adolph A. Weinman designed the Walking Liberty image in 1916 at a time when America was reviving its circulation coinage. Walking Liberty appeared on the nation’s half-dollar coin from 1916 to 1947.
On the reverse of the 2018 Proof Silver American Eagle is the heraldic eagle of the United States. Former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, refined this image in 1986 for use on the Silver Eagle.
