Silver Eagles were introduced by the United States Mint in 1986. That year featured the debuts of the Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions of the coin. While proof coining originally had mintage limits, the US Mint rarely places a maximum on the Proof Silver Eagle in any given year. In 2006, a third option was introduced in the form of a collectible Burnished Silver Eagle.
Since 1986, there have only been three missed issues of the coin. The US Mint must issue the BU version of the coin annually, but the same stipulation is not in place for the Proof or Burnished coin. In 2009, neither the Proof nor Burnished coin was issued. The Burnished coin was also skipped in 2010. All three missing date marks were the result of intense demand for the BU coin and a shortage of available blanks for coining.
Walking Liberty is found on the obverse of 2020-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles. This design comes from Adolph A. Weinman and was created in 1916. It featured on the half dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The heraldic eagle of the United States features on the reverse of the 2020-W Proof Silver Eagle. This image was modernized in 1986 for this series by John Mercanti. Mr. Mercanti retired from the United States Mint in 2010, having served his final four years with the US Mint as the 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint.
These 2020-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles are available to you in perfect condition. A PF70 coin showcases full, original mint luster with no detractions. The included UCAM label stands for ultra-cameo and refers to the presence of strong, frosted designs with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
