At its launch in 2017, the latest Proof American Silver Eagle coin jumped out of the gates with sales of 233,000 coins on the very first day. The Proof American Silver Eagle coin is popular with each new release because of its beautiful design and the excellent work of the United States Mint in their production.
The 2017 Proof American Silver Eagles available to you today are in perfect condition in the eyes of the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster, and lack all types of detracting flaws on the coin’s surface areas.
An Ultra-cameo, or UCAM, designation is reserved for proof coins with an especially beautiful finish. Coins in this condition exhibit strong, frosted matte finishes on the design features and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
The reverse of Proof Silver Eagle coins includes the heraldic eagle design. Originally used in 1794 on the first coins struck at the Philadelphia Mint, this image is the latest incarnation of the Heraldic Eagle of the United States, and was created by former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti.
On the obverse of all 2017 American Silver Eagle coins you’ll find the image of Walking Liberty. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, her figure is meant to reflect the nation’s constant drive toward a brighter future as she walks toward the setting sun with the American flag around her shoulders.
For diehard fans of the Proof American Silver Eagle, 2017 brings an additional surprise with the release of a 2017-S Proof American Silver Eagle. The striking of the “S” proofs at the San Francisco Mint returns some of the production to its original mint home, and the coins will be available in other sets throughout the year with limited mintage figures.
