American Silver Eagle coins are the official silver bullion offering of the United States Mint. The 2016 issue of the Proof Silver Eagle marked the coins 30th anniversary with the inclusion of a first-ever edge lettering on the coins that read 30th Anniversary.
Though that edge lettering is gone for 2017, the coins remain immensely popular. Final mintage for the 2016 Proofs is unknown to date, but opening sales reached 322,317. That figure is nearly 60,000 more than the opening sales for 2015 issued Silver Eagle proofs. For the 2017 launch, Proof American Silver Eagle coins jumped out to an impressive first-day sales total of 233,000 coins.
On the obverse of the Proof American Silver Eagle is Adolph A. Weinman’s iconic Walking Liberty design. It features Lady Liberty walking toward the setting sun with her right hand outstretched and the American flag draped over her shoulders.
The reverse of the 2017 Proof American Silver Eagle includes the heraldic eagle of the US. This design first debuted on original American coinage from the US Mint in 1794. Over the past two centuries it has been updated, including this 1986 refinement from former Chief Engraver of the US Mint, John Mercanti.
The 2017 Proof American Silver Eagles available to you today are in perfect condition in the eyes of the PCGS. Coins with a PR70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster, and lack all types of detracting flaws on the coins surface areas.
A Deep-cameo, or DCAM, 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.
