From 1990 to 1994, the Proof American Silver Eagle experienced declining mintages each year, reaching a record low in 1994. The 1995 coin witnessed increased demand due to the 10th-anniversary date mark, a trend that continued in 1996. Although the 1997 coin saw demand return to normal 1990s levels with a total of 435,368 coins produced and sold, it marked the beginning of a rebound in the series. Mintages would climb in each of the next four years, never falling back to mid-1990s levels.
The obverse field features Adolph A. Weinman’s 1916 depiction of Walking Liberty. Liberty walks toward the sun on the horizon, draped in the American flag with oak and laurel branches in her left hand.
The reverse of the 1997-P 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coin showcases the heraldic eagle of the United States, a symbol used since the founding of the US Mint in 1792. The eagle holds the US national heraldic shield on its chest, arrows of war in one talon, and an olive branch of peace in the other.
Proof American Silver Eagle Coins represent the collectible version of the national silver bullion coin series. The coin’s frosted visual elements with mirrored background fields create a stunning visual separation between the design element and the coin’s surface.
These 1997-P 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins with PF70 certifications are available at JM Bullion. Coins with this grade exhibit full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. UCAM specimens boast strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
