Proof American Silver Eagle Coins are available each year alongside their bullion counterparts but dont boast the same impressive mintage figures that regularly reach into the tens of millions annually. The highest mintage figure in the history of the Proof Silver Eagle remains the debut issue from 1986 which saw 1.44 million coins sold.
On the obverse of 2018-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins is the design of Walking Liberty. First created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, the image captures Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon with her right hand outstretched. The American flag is draped over her shoulders as she carries the oak and laurel branches in her left hand.
The reverse of 2018 Proof American Silver Eagle Coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. This iconic design was first developed by Robert Scot in 1794 for the very first American currency issued by the United States Mint. This modern version of the seal was designed in 1986 by John Mercanti for use on the Silver Eagles.
All American Silver Eagle coins are produced by the West Point Mint, with the Proof Silver Eagles boasting a W mint mark to identify the mint as the production facility.
