The United States Mint has begun selling of the 2024-W American Eagle silver proof. On the Mint’s site, the one-ounce proof coin is priced at $80, and, as is usually the case, there is no mintage limit on the coin, but there is a household limit of 25 in places. This year, the 2024-W American Eagle silver proof’s pricing remained the same as last year’s.
Introduced in 1986, the popular and now-iconic United States Mint American Eagle Silver Proof Coins are collector versions of the official American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. These popular silver collectibles are struck at the United States Mint at West Point and have the “W” mint mark.
The classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman featured on the coin’s obverse (heads) has long been a collector favorite. It depicts Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. The United States Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Weinman’s original version and detail that include the addition of his traditional artist mark. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “2024,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
A completely new reverse (tails) design was introduced in 2021. It features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
