The Proof American Silver Eagle has been issued every year by the US Mint since 1986, save 2009 when the crush for silver bullion pinched the global supply and demand forced the Mint to skip proof production that year. Collectors covet every year’s release of the Proof American Silver Eagle, and this year is no exception!
Each 2017 Proof American Silver Eagle coin listed here is a perfect specimen. The NGC has issued each a PF70 grade, indicating the presence of its full, original mint luster. Additionally, there are no detracting flaws anywhere on the coin’s surface areas. The Early Release designation applies to coins received by the NGC for certification within the first 30 days of the release date by the US Mint.
With the additional UCAM designation, these coins have added visual beauty and brilliance. The strong, frosted matte finish of the design set contrasts nicely with the deeply-mirrored, clear background field. This helps create the visual of the design sets floating above the coin’s surface.
On the obverse of each Proof American Silver Eagle coin you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Her depiction is meant to symbolize the nation’s march toward a brighter future and is captured through her appearance with the American flag over her shoulder as she walks toward the setting sun.
The reverse of the 2017 American Silver Eagle bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. This image has been in use on American coinage since 1794, but this particular design is a 1986 modernization from John Mercanti, Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1986 to 2010.
