With another record-breaking mintage, the 1992 Proof Silver Eagle is the first silver eagle to have a mintage fall under 500,000. At a whopping 498,654 coins being minted in 1992, this proves yet another reason to consider investing in the Proof Silver Eagle series. The main difference between a brilliant uncirculated coin and a proof coin is the type of finish applied to the coin. A brilliantly uncirculated coin exhibits a natural sheen with a clean matte finish and the proof coin displays a shiny, "mirrored" finish. This mirrored finish increases the value of a proof coin since it costs more to make. A proof coin is also packaged differently and more officially than the brilliant uncirculated coin, luring in collectors who take pride in the presentation of their personal collections. Lastly, the brilliant uncirculated coins carry a higher mintage than any of the proof coins ever have. For this reason alone, collectors are drawn to Proof Silver Eagles for collection purposes and for long-term investment.
Your 1992 Proof Silver Eagle is guaranteed to weigh one troy ounce of .999 silver and comes in an airtight capsule, original mint packaging and its COA. The US Coat of Arms is presented on the reverse of every silver eagle. The design consists of a shielded eagle, holding an olive branch and arrows tightly in both of its talons. Across its widespread wings, the infamous Latin phrase, "E pluribus unum," is written on a banner. The coin's purity and authenticity are also included with the national seal. Lady Liberty is calmly walking across the obverse of this coin while effortlessly holding a bundle of branches. "Liberty," “In God We Trust," and the coin's year of mintage are all stamped onto the obverse.
