WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) will accept orders for American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coins produced at the San Francisco Mint (product code 18EM) beginning on August 14 at noon Eastern Time (ET). The coins are priced at $55.95 each.
Like their counterparts produced at the West Point Mint, the obverse (heads) design of these coins features Adolph A. Weinman’s full–length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2018.”
The coins’ reverse design features former Mint Sculptor Engraver John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle with a shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ.,” and “FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR.”
Each encapsulated coin arrives in a blue velvet, satin-lined presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
