About American Eagle Silver Proof Coins
Proof Silver American Eagle Coins are the official version of the United States bullion coin and are available only in one ounce denominations. The American Eagle One Ounce Proof Silver Bullion Coin contains 99.9% silver. Multiple strikes gives this unique coin a mirror-like finish. The word “proof” refers to the process that starts by inserting brilliant coin blanks into presses with special dyes. Every Proof Silver American Eagle Coin is struck multiple times, making the frosted images appear to float above a mirror-like field. Once thoroughly inspected, every Proof Silver American Eagle Coin is put into a protective plastic case and then inserted into a satin-lined velvet display case.
