When the United States Mint released the Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver coin in 2005, the interest it generated from collectors was a sign of high-times to come for the popular silver series. After 2005, mintage would continue rising for one year and hold steady at never-before-seen annual levels until 2016. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2005-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins online at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
Certified Proof American Eagle Silver Coins are available from the NGC or PCGS with a numeric grade from the Sheldon scale. This scale rates coins from 1 to 70, with 70 representing a perfect coin. The coin is judged by the quality of its mint luster and the condition of both the strike and the background field.
Walking Liberty is depicted on the obverse of all 2005 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver coins. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, this image features Liberty in left-profile relief walking from right to left across the coins design field in pursuit of the sun on the horizon. Her left hand carries the branches of oak and laurel as her right hand reaches out toward the brightness of a new day.
The heraldic eagle of the United States is the oldest coin design still in use by the US Mint and it was modernized in 1986 for use on the reverse of the Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins. Created for this series by John Mercanti, the modern heraldic eagle comes with the image of an eagle with the national shield on its chest. The bird clutches the olive branch of peace and arrows of war in its talons. There is also a triangular cluster of 13 stars over its head.
The 2005 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin marked the third consecutive year in which mintage figures rose in the series and was the third in a four-year period of growth. The growth in demand from 2004 to 2005 was modest at around 16,000 coins, but the 2006 coin would soar to a mintage of 1.092 million on the strength of the 20th-anniversary date mark in the collection.
2005-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins in this listing have PF70 grades. This indicates the coins have full, original mint luster and no signs of detracting flaws. The UCAM designation references the strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
