As the United States Mint celebrated the 25th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle in 2011, a special five-coin set was released. The set included the typical Proof American Silver Eagle coin, complete with “W” mint mark; the typical bullion coin struck by the West Point Mint (no mint mark), and the typical uncirculated (burnished) coin also struck by the West Point Mint with “W” mint mark.
For the 25th anniversary celebration, the United States Mint included two special strikings of the Silver Eagle coin in this 5-coin collection. The set included a second uncirculated version of the coin produced by the San Francisco Mint, and featured an “S” mint mark. The fifth coin was a special reverse proof Silver Eagle produced by the Philadelphia Mint that bore the “P” mint mark.
Reverse proof American Silver Eagle coins feature a brilliant, unique finish that includes a deeply-mirrored, clear finish to the design features of the coin. Alternatively, the background field of the coin bears a strong, frosted finish for maximum contrast between the design and background.
The reverse of the American Silver Eagle features a modern interpretation of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Created by the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, this is a modern version of a symbol that has featured on American coinage since the 19th century.
On the obverse of each 2011 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin you’ll find the stunning Walking Liberty design. This image was created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916 for use on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, a coin that was in circulation in the US from 1916 to 1947. This is considered one of the most beloved design ever used on American coinage.
