Proof Silver Eagles Mintage

The Proof Silver Eagle has been issued each year from 1986 to 2008 as a collectible version of the American Silver Eagle bullion coin. The coins were not issued for 2009 and the ongoing status of the proof series remains contingent on the ability of the United States Mint to meet demand for bullion coins. Each coin is created through a specialized minting process whereby the coins are struck multiple times by specialized dies. The finished coins have a cameo finish with frosted raised elements and mirrored backgrounds.

The design for the obverse and reverse of the coins is the same as found on the silver bullion coins. The obverse is Adolph A. Weinman’s rendition of “Walking Liberty” and the reverse is a heraldic eagle designed by John Mercanti. In 2021, the reverse design was replaced with a flying eagle design created by Emily Damstra.
