2020 San Francisco Proof Silver Eagle
2020 San Francisco Proof American Silver Eagle
This special edition 2020 proof silver eagle is minted at San Francisco and includes the original mint packaging, velvet presentation case and Certificate of Authenticity. The coin features the nostalgic "S" mintmark on the reverse. Only 200,000 coins will be minted!
The obverse design features Adolph A. Weinman's stunning Walking Liberty design dating back to 1916, with an ever hopeful Liberty striding confidently toward the sunrise, draped in the strength of the Stars and Stripes carrying in her arms branches of laurel and oak to symbolize both civil and military glory. The reverse design, by United States Mint sculptor John Mercanti, features a striking heraldic eagle with shield, and olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.
The 2020 silver eagle will be the last year of the current heraldic eagle reverse design. Starting in 2021, the US Mint plans to redesign the reverse of the coin by adding high-tech security features to help combat counterfeiting. This will be the first major design change to the silver eagle coin since it was introduced in 1986!
Proof coins are specially minted for collectors and are made from highly polished planchets (coin blanks) and dies. These coins receive the highest quality strike possible and can be distinguished from regular uncirculated coins by their sharpness of detail, deeply frosted cameo image, and brilliant mirrored background.
