Each 2018 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin listed here is a near-perfect specimen according to the PCGS.

These flaws are limited in scope to miniscule hairlines or contact marks and are found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
American Silver Eagle coins are available in three different versions. The bullion coin debuted in 1986 and was designed for silver investors. The proof coin debuted the same year and was geared towards silver collectors. The latest addition to the program came in 2006 when the United States Mint took advantage of the 20th anniversary of the coin release to issue a new burnished coin in extremely low mintages for collectors.
On the obverse of 2018 1 oz American Silver Eagle coins you’ll find the image of Lady Liberty. Featured on all American Eagle coins, Liberty’s depiction on the Silver Eagle is unique to this series. Originally created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, Walking Liberty was used on the American half-dollar coin until 1947 when it was replaced by Benjamin Franklin’s effigy.
The reverse of all American Silver Eagle coins bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. Featured on countless American coins since 1794, the heraldic eagle was modernized on this coin series by John Mercanti in 1986.
American Silver Eagle coins are part of a larger series that includes Gold Eagle, Platinum Eagle, and Palladium Eagle coins. Created by the United States Mint, bullion coins have no mint mark to denote the mint of origin from the US Mint system.
