American Silver Eagle Proof

Facts at a Glance

  • The American Silver Eagle proof coin, with a 99.9% silver content and first struck in 1987, is different from the bullion version, as it bears the Mint’s strike and is not circulated.
  • It has a face value of $1 but is primarily valued for the silver it contains, featuring a stunning design of Walking Liberty by Adolf Weinman, realized in high relief with modern technology.
  • This proof coin is unique as it can be placed into a Precious Metals IRA, making it a sought-after option for investors.


This elegant, high gloss coin was first struck in 1987. Unlike the bullion version of the same coin, the American Silver Eagle proof coin bears the strike of the Mint from which they were issued, and are not put into circulation. With a silver content of 99.9%, the purity of this proof coin is backed by the U.S. government.

Though the coin has a face value of $1, it has never circulated as such, being a repository of the real market value of the silver contained in the coin. Featuring Adolf Weinman’s exquisite 1916 design of Walking Liberty, it is a truly stunning coin, as the original high relief design has been finally realized with 21st century technology.

The American Silver Eagle proof coin is the only limited-edition silver coin that you can place into a Precious Metals IRA.
