Why add the 2000-P Proof American Silver Eagle to your collection
Proof American Silver Eagles have been a favorite among modern silver coin collectors since their inception in 1986. They are one of the longest running series of proof silver coins currently available, and their one ounce .999 fine silver content is guaranteed and backed by the United States government.
These coins are also historic and beautiful. The design on the obverse side of the coin was originally sculpted by designer Adolph A. Weinman in 1916 as a part of Theodore Roosevelt's Renaissance of American Coinage, and graced the obverse side of America's half dollar coin from 1916 through 1947. The re-introduction of this design to the Silver Eagle was in response to the widespread popularity of this design with collectors, and because it is a beautiful representation of America.
The reverse side of this proof coin was created by the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John M. Mercanti. His design using a heraldic eagle with arrows and olive branches in each of its talons is a symbol of America that dates back to the beginning of the country, and is a very fitting choice for the reverse side of America's most collected bullion coin series.
This special edition collector coin is a limited proof coin, meaning that it was made especially with collectors in mind. It comes in the original handsome display box provided by the mint when the coin was new. Get yours today!
