Each of the 2022-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles available here comes in near-perfect condition. The coins have been graded PR69 by the Professional Coin Grading Service. This means the coins exhibit full, original mint luster and have a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of these flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
DCAM designations are for proof coins with deep-cameo visuals. This indicates the coins have strong, frosted design elements with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. First Strike means the coins were received by the PCGS for certification within 30 days of release from the mint.
The obverse side of 2022 1 oz Proof Silver Eagles comes with a depiction of Walking Liberty. This design was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman for the US Mint to use on the half dollar. In this image, Walking Liberty is captured in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon as she carries the branches of oak and laurel. The design includes the American flag around the figure of Liberty.
On the reverse of 2022-W Proof Silver American Eagles is an image of the American bald eagle. This design was created by Emily Damstra in 2020 and featured on the Silver Eagle for the first time in 2021. In this image, the bald eagle is shown swooping into view with its wings flexed and its talons outstretched clutching an oak branch.
