Each 2018 Proof Silver American Eagle Coin in this product listing is available to you in perfect condition from the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws of any kind. The Early Release designation indicates coins that were received within the first 30 days of the US Mint’s set release date for its 2018 Silver Eagle proofs.
UCAM, or ultra-cameo, coins have strong, frosted design sets and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The combined visual effects give the appearance of design elements floating above the coin’s surface area.
Proof Silver Eagle coins have beautiful finishes found on other types of proof coins. The background fields deliver a mirrored appearance, with a matte finish to the design features that help create a sense of visual contrast when viewing the coins.
On the obverse of 2018 Proof Silver American Eagle Coins is the image of Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, this image depicts Liberty in a classic figure as she walks toward the setting sun holding olive branches and laurel in her left hand, with her right hand outstretched to the horizon and the American flag on her shoulders.
The reverse of all Proof Silver American Eagle Coins is the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design features the heraldic shield of the US, with a bald eagle behind it that clutches the arrows of war and olive branch of peace in its talons. There are 13 stars above its head that represent the original American colonies.
Proof Silver American Eagle Coins are produced by the United States Mint at its West Point Mint location. This is indicated by the presence on the reverse of a “W” mint mark found below the olive branch in the eagle’s talon.
