On the obverse of the 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle is the image of Walking Liberty. In this depiction, Liberty is shown walking toward the setting sun with laurels of oak and olive branches in her left hand as her right hand reaches out for the horizon. She wears the American flag over her shoulders as she walks the nation toward a brighter future.
The reverse of 2018 Proof Silver Eagles includes one of the nation’s oldest designs. The heraldic eagle of the United States was first used on American coinage in 1794, and has been updated many times since. This design was updated in 1986 by John Mercanti, former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
All 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle coins in this listing are near-perfect specimens according to the PCGS. Coins with a PR69 certification show full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited to minuscule hairlines and contact marks.
First Strike is a designation for coins that arrive within 30 days of the US Mint’s set release date for 2018 Proof Silver Eagles. This is denoted by an FS label within the protective plastic slab the coin is housed in. Deep-cameo, or DCAM, coins have strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
