The Proof Silver Eagle is regularly struck in much lower figures than the bullion counterpart. While the bullion coin is meant as an investment vehicle, the Proof American Silver Eagle is a collectible piece. Like many other collectible coins, its first year was its best for mintage figures. However, the Silver Eagle proof has seen high mintage figures many times in recent years, such as 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
Each 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle Coin listed here today is in near-perfect condition according to the NGC. Coins with a PF69 grade show full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These detracting flaws are limited to minuscule hairlines or contact marks.
The Early Release designation for these coins denotes the time of their arrival at the NGC for certification. In this case, the coins arrived within 30 days of the release date set by the United States Mint for its 2018 Proof Silver Eagles. Additionally, the ultra-cameo designation indicates these coins have strong, frosted designs with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields that give the impression of the design floating over the coins surface.
On the obverse of all Proof American Silver Eagle coins youll notice Walking Liberty. This iconic American coin design was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman during a period of American coin revival in the early 20th century. This design featured on the half-dollar coin from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse of all American Silver Eagle coins features one of Americas first-ever coin designs. The heraldic eagle first appeared on American coins in 1794, but todays version has been upgraded and modified by John Mercanti for use on the Silver Eagle.
