When it comes to the popularity of collectible proof coins, no release is more popular than the first date mark. Since its 1986 introduction, no coin in the Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin series has outsold that very first release in 1986. Right now, you can buy the 1986-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin online at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
The 1986-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin you purchase here today comes with a PR70 grade from the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws of any kind present on the design elements or surface areas. The additional DCAM label stands for deep-cameo and refers to the presence of strong, frosted design elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
The obverse side of the 1986-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin features the Walking Liberty design. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, Walking Liberty is widely considered one of two greatest American coin designs of all time alongside the Liberty design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens that debuted in 1907. The Walking Liberty design was originally used on the US half dollar from 1916 to 1947.
On the reverse face of 1986 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins is the heraldic eagle of the United States. Originally created in 1792 by Robert Scot, the 1st Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, this modern depiction connects with that first design over more than two centuries of history as it was modified by the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti.
With 1,446,778 coins sold in the Proof American Eagle Silver debut in 1986, that mintage figure remains the highest in program history. The only coin release since that first year to come close to that figure was the 2006 release of the 20th-anniversary Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin with a final mintage of 1,092,477.
