This year, the US Mint celebrates 30 years since the release of this exceptional coin. The first Proof American Silver Eagles came in 1986. Since their release up until 1992, the coins would carry the “S” mintmark of the San Francisco facility. Between 1993 and 2000, the coins displayed the “P” mintmark, from the Philadelphia facility. Finally, starting with 2001 the coins carry the “W” mintmark from the West Point facility. (This was except for 2009 when the US Mint didn’t issue any Proof Silver Eagles) 

Coin Details

The splendid 2016 Proof Silver American Eagle Coin consists of one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. It has an exceptional mirror-like finish. Additionally, it comes with the $1 face value. The US Government guarantees its weight and purity.

On the obverse side of the coin is the prize-worthy image, a design by Adolph A. Weinman. He is a famous American sculptor-engraver. The image represents the famous Walking Liberty design.  You can see this design on the Walking Liberty Half Dollars. It features Lady Liberty holding laurel and oak branches in her left hand. She walks confidently towards the sunlight – the symbol of our Nation’s strength. The US Flag envelops the graceful full-length figure of Liberty. Also, you can read the inscriptions “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and “2016”.2016 Proof Silver American Eagle Coin


The reverse design of the Proof Silver American Eagles was a creation by the former US Mint Chief Sculptor-Engraver, John M. Mercanti. It showcases the image of the majestic heraldic eagle. The eagle holds an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon. Additionally, a banner, displaying the words “E Pluribus Unum,” is in its beak. It carries its shield. This representation is the symbol of the preparedness of America to defend itself; as well as the desire for peace. The thirteen stars symbolizing the thirteen original colonies display above the eagle’s image. You will also see the engravings “One Dollar,” “United States of America,” and the weight and purity of the coin.
