The American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin is struck on a 99.9 percent fine silver blank. The coin’s obverse displays Adolph A. Weinman’s full-length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. Its reverse features former Mint Sculptor-Engraver John Mercanti’s rendering of a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon, and arrows in the left. Each coin is encapsulated and packaged in a satin-lined blue velvet presentation case. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
Produced since 1986, the American Eagle Silver Proof Coin is the collector version of the official United States Mint American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin. Beginning in mid-2021, the coin will feature a new reverse design in recognition of the 35th anniversary of the American Eagle Coin Program. Visit catalog.usmint.gov to learn more.
