The United States Mint issued the Proof Silver American Eagle for the first time in 1986. From 1986 to 1992, the San Francisco Mint struck the Proof Silver Eagle for the US Mint. The coins were then issued by the Philadelphia Mint from 1993 to 2000, and have been struck at the West Point Mint as of 2001.
Starting in 2018, the United States Mint resumed coining additional Proof Silver Eagles each year at the San Francisco Mint. As of 2018, the Proof Silver Eagle has been issued in larger numbers at the West Point Mint with a W mint mark and in lower numbers at the San Francisco Mint with an S mint mark.
Obverse designs of the 2018-S Proof Silver Eagle include the image of Walking Liberty. The design was created for the US Mint in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and featured on the US Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947. The image shows the full-length figure of Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun rising over a mountain on the horizon. Liberty is wrapped in the American flag as she walks.
Reverse visuals on 2018-S 1 oz Proof Silver Eagles depict the American bald eagle with the US national shield. Known as the heraldic eagle, this design was modernized in 1986 by John Mercanti for the Silver Eagle Series. The image shows a bald eagle in front-facing relief supporting the US national shield as it clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
These 2018-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles are offered to you with the original US Mint packaging. The coins are encapsulated and housed individually inside presentation boxes and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
