The 1991 Proof American Silver Eagle stands out as a premier collectible piece, renowned for its exceptional design, superior craftsmanship, and significant metal value. This proof edition is a celebrated member of the American Silver Eagle series, launched by the United States Mint in 1986.

Highly esteemed for showcasing one of the most beloved designs in the annals of American coinage and numismatics, the U.S. Mint Proof Silver Eagle series also captures attention for its investment potential and collector interest, owing to its silver composition and purity.

While these proof silver coins carry a nominal face value of one dollar, their metal melt value far exceeds a $1 USD price.

  • Edge: The coin features a reeded edge with 201 reeds, adding to its tactile appeal.

  • Iconic Design: The obverse displays the revered "Walking Liberty" by Adolph A. Weinman, and the reverse presents John Mercanti's heraldic eagle design.

  • Mintage: In 1991, the production of Proof American Silver Eagles was 511,925, which is considered a limited run, highlighting its limited edition exclusivity.

  • Mint Location: These coins were struck at the San Francisco Mint, indicated by the "S" mint mark on the reverse.

  • Collectibility: The proof quality, with its mirror-like finish, significantly increases its desirability among collectors.

  • Certificate of Authenticity: Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).


Design and Designer:

The US Mint coin's obverse is adorned with Adolph A. Weinman's iconic "Walking Liberty" design, first introduced on the Half Dollar coin from 1916 to 1947. This design features Lady Liberty moving forward, cloaked in the stars and stripes flag, extending her right hand and holding branches of laurel and oak in her left. She moves towards a rising sun with 13 sunrays, representing the original thirteen colonies.

The reverse, crafted by John Mercanti, depicts a heraldic eagle with a liberty shield, grasping an olive branch and arrows in its talons, under 13 stars representing the original colonies. The eagle holds a banner in its beak, inscribed with “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

The 1991 Proof American Silver Eagle is a testament to the United States Mint's commitment to quality and a significant piece of American numismatic history. Its blend of artistic design and precious metal content continues to captivate collectors and investors.

These 1991 Proof American Silver Eagles are offered as non-graded, standard condition, proof coins. These proof American Eagle coins are valued higher than standard silver bullion coins.
