The first Proof American Silver Eagles were minted back in 1986. The Proof Silver Eagles are unique and different from their counterparts, in that the coin is stamped multiple times to showcase the extremely fine details in the coin design and to bring the face of the coin to a mirror-like finish.
The United States Mint employees are required to wear white gloves whenever handling the Proof Coins in order to preserve their finish and not smudge them in any way.
The Proof American Silver Eagles are one troy ounce of .999 fine silver and are stamped with the finest detail. Each coin is sealed to preserve their value, and come in a velvet presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Proof American Silver Eagles have their place amongst collectors that truly appreciate their frosted design and high contrast design. We recommend these beautiful coins for collectors only, or for the investor that wants to invest a higher premium for their proof design.
