2012 Silver Eagle Reverse PR69 First Strike PCGS (S) Coin w/ Slab
Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the San Francisco Mint, the 2012 American Eagle San Francisco Reverse Proof is an exquisite coin that captures the essence and beauty of the silver eagle. Silver Eagles are the official silver bullion coins of the United States. First released in 1986, they feature the Walking Liberty design that was originally used between 1916 and 1947 on the obverse of the half-dollar coin. This design by Adolph A. Weinman was deemed such a coinage classic, as well as public favorite, that it was revived for the modern Silver Eagle years later. On the reverse of these beautiful coins is an eagle design by John Mercanti. This 2012 version is very unique as it was the second year that the US Mint produced a Silver Eagle at the San Francisco mint that was not a Proof coin. The coin is graded by NGC and has the special Golden Gate Bridge label. This is very highly sought after by collectors and numismatist's alike!

    American Eagle:
    The United States Mint began the American Eagle coin program in 1986. American Eagles are struck each year in silver, gold, and, since 1997, platinum bullion. The Silver Eagle is only available in a $1 denomination. As genuine legal tender, it is the only silver bullion coin whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. Each silver coin contains a minimum of one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. The Gold Eagle comes in $5, $10, $25, and $50 denominations with the values representing 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 ounce of gold, respectively. The Platinum Eagle is struck in denominations of $10, $25, $50, and $100 with values representing 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 ounce of platinum, respectively. American Eagles are available in both Proof and Uncirculated strikes.

    The Silver Eagle obverse features Adolph Weinman's classic "Liberty Walking" design which shows Lady Liberty mid-step, draped in the American flag with her right arm extended toward the sun and olive branches cradled in her left arm. The Gold Eagle obverse offers a design inspired by the 1907 $20 gold piece created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens with Lady Liberty standing at the center in front of the sun, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. The Platinum Eagle obverse shows the head and crown of the Statue of Liberty. The reverse design for regular strikes of the Platinum Eagle is a bald eagle flying in front of the sun. The reverse design for Proof strikes varies by year, but each includes a representation of an eagle somewhere in the image.
