American Eagle Silver Proof
Like its gold counterpart the American Eagle Silver Proof has been minted by the United States Mint annually since 1987. The American Eagle Silver Proof is available in one-ounce coins.
Each silver proof coin bears the W mintmark to indicate they were minted at West Point- the facility responsible for the entire family of American Eagle proof and uncirculated coins in gold, silver, and platinum.
The coin bears the distinctive designs of Augustus Saint-Gaudens rendition of Liberty, recognized as one of the worlds most beautiful designs, and sculptor Miley Busieks equally majestic golden eagle scene meant to symbolize family tradition and unity.
The obverse or heads side of the proof coin shows Liberty with flowing hair and holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The reverse or tails side of the coin has an image of a male eagle carrying an olive branch and flying above a nest with a female eagle and her hatchlings. As is traditional, the proof coins have production limits in place.
