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.
The Mint accepts orders at catalog.usmint.gov/ and at 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Hearing- and speech-impaired customers with TTY equipment may order at 1-888-321-MINT. Information about shipping options is available at catalog.usmint.gov/customer-service/shipping.html.
About the United States Mint
Congress created the United States Mint in 1792, and the Mint became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873. As the Nation’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage, the Mint is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce. The Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; silver and bronze medals; and silver and gold bullion coins. Its numismatic programs are self-sustaining and operate at no cost to taxpayers.
Note: To ensure that all members of the public have fair and equal access to United States Mint products, the United States Mint will not accept and will not honor orders placed prior to the official on-sale date of Aug. 14, 2019, at noon ET.
