Each of the 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle Coins listed here today is in perfect condition. A coin with the PCGS grade of PR70 exhibits full, original mint luster and lacks any sign of detracting flaws. The First Strike designation indicates that these coins were received for certification by the PCGS within 30 days of the US Mint’s release date for its 2018 Proof American Silver Eagles.
DCAM, or deep-cameo, coins have beautiful visuals. These kinds of proof coins have deeply-mirrored background fields with strong, frosted design sets that have the appearance of floating above the coin surface.
The Proof American Silver Eagle coin debuted in 1986, together with the 1 oz silver bullion coin. While the bullion version has been struck in every year since that time, the 2009 issue of Proof Silver Eagles was suspended as the mint struggled to secure enough silver blanks to coin its bullion Silver Eagles.
On the obverse of all 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle Coins you’ll find the image of Lady Liberty. This particular design was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, and used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin in the US from 1916 to 1947. The image features Liberty as she walks toward the setting sun on the horizon, which is symbolic of the nation’s march toward brighter days ahead.
The reverse of 2018 American Silver Eagles bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. Originally designed in 1794, this particular design was refined and modernized by John Mercanti in 1986 for use on the Silver Eagle. It depicts the bald eagle behind the nation’s heraldic shield as it clutches arrows and an olive branch.
All Proof American Silver Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint at its West Point Mint location. This is denoted by the “W” mint mark on the reverse side of the coin below the heraldic eagle.
