For the 2017 launch, Proof American Silver Eagle coins jumped out to an impressive first-day sales total of 233,000 coins. 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.
All 2017 Proof American Silver Eagle coins in this listing have PR69 grades from the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster, but also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws such as minuscule hairlines. All flaws are found outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
The DCAM, or deep-cameo, designation on these coins is reserved for only the most beautiful proof coins. A DCAM coin features a strong, frosted matte finish on the design sets and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. The combined visual effect of these features is the impression of the design floating over the coins 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.
