After witnessing substantial increases in mintage levels over five years, the American Silver Eagle experienced a slight cooldown in 2012. Mintage had surged from 10.4 million coins in 2007 to a record-breaking 40.02 million in 2011. Provident Metals is excited to offer the 2012-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin!


  • Securely packaged in a commemorative box with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Represents the 26th striking of the Proof American Silver Eagle!
  • Limited mintage of 877,731 proof coins in 2012!
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Issued a face value of $1 (USD) by the United States government.
  • Features the iconic Walking Liberty on the obverse.
  • The reverse showcases the heraldic eagle.
  • Bears the “W” mint mark, indicating its origin at the West Point Mint.

While the overall production of American Eagles saw a modest decrease in 2012, it remains noteworthy. Following the record-setting 40 million coins in 2011, the US Mint recorded sales of 34.8 million American Eagle Silver Coins in 2012. Such fluctuations are common after anniversary years, much like the spike in 2006 following the 20th-anniversary celebration.


The obverse of 2012-W Proof Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin showcases the timeless image of Walking Liberty, originally created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. This iconic design adorned the Walking Liberty Half Dollar until 1947, making it one of the longest-running coin designs in American history. Inscriptions include LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 2012.


On the reverse side of the 2012-W Proof American Eagle Silver Coin, you’ll find John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle design from 1986. Mercanti served as the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1986 until his retirement in 2010. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ. FINE SILVER, ONE DOLLAR, and the W mint mark.


The standard 2012-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin had a total mintage of 877,731, marking only a slight dip. The primary decrease occurred in the bullion coin category, falling from 40 million in 2011 to 33.7 million in 2012.


These 2012-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins arrive in plastic capsules. Each one comes with a US Mint box and a Certificate of Authenticity.
