1994-P Proof American Silver Eagle in Original Mint Packaging
The 1994-P American Silver Eagle was minted during a period of decline in the American Silver Eagle series. This decline is rather common for any coin series as the initial 'inaugural spike' ends and the decline to the low point ensues. This being the eighth year of issue for the proof Silver Eagle, the 1994 issue is near the end of the decline before lasting popularity once again carries the mintage figures upward, so this coin is effectively in the lower mintage era of the series making it tougher to find than many other issues.
Most modern coins issued in annual series suffer a decline in mintage after the initial couple of years, and the American Silver Eagle is no exception to that general rule of modern coins. While some series come to a close during the decline with the misinterpretation of a lack of interest, the American Silver Eagle rebounded from the decline to post record mintage figures year after year just a few years after the release of this 1994 coin. Collectors generally like to see a consistent issue with a nice design, and the Proof American Silver Eagles fit both of these criteria nicely.
Mintage is low for this American Silver proof coin at just 372,168. The Mint packaging that the coin will come with includes: the Certificate of Authenticity, the felt lined presentation box, the cardboard box and the coin in a mint capsule.
