Proof Silver Eagle Mintages


Proof Silver EagleProof versions of the American Silver Eagle have been issued for collectors since the start of the series in 1986. From 1986 to 1992, the coins carried the "S" mint mark to designate mintage at the San Francisco Mint. From 1993-2000, the coins carried the "P" mint mark for the Philadelphia Mint. From 2001 to present, the coins carried the "W" mint mark to designate mintage at the West Point Mint.

In 2009, the proof version of the Silver Eagle was not issued as the US Mint struggled to meet demand for the bullion versions of the coin.

In 1995, a special coin was issued with the "W" mint mark as part of the 10th Anniversary Gold Eagle Set. The 1995-W Proof Silver Eagle had an extremely low mintage and is considered the key date coin of the Silver Eagles.

In recent years, there have been numerous specially issued versions of the Silver Eagle. In 2006 and 2011, reverse proof versions of the coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint and included within special anniversary sets. In 2012, a proof coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint with the "S" mint mark and sold within special sets. In 2013, a reverse proof version was struck at the West Point Mint and released in a special set.

The table below shows the mintage figures for Proof Silver Eagles from 1986 to present.
