2002-W Proof American Silver Eagle

In 2001 the United States Mint surprised collectors by moving the Proof American Silver Eagle production to the West Point Mint facility in New York. With that move came a change in the mint mark that shows to the left of the tail of the eagle on the reverse side of the coin. The widely recognized 'W' mint mark had not been seen on a Proof Silver Eagle since the vastly under-minted key date coins sold with proof gold sets back in 1995. The production moved to West Point because they were better equipped to handle production of high quality proof coins in larger numbers.

Production did increase somewhat in 2001, but by 2002 orders had dropped somewhat and production fell by almost 100 thousand coins. This makes the 2002-W regular issue Proof Silver Eagle the smallest issue in terms of mintage from the West Point Mint. While not considered a key of the series, the 2002-W issue is certainly part of a complete set, and that - coupled with its smaller mintage during a time of higher demand - makes these a little difficult to find at times on the market. get yours today!

US Mint 2002 Silver Eagle Proof Sets
I ordered 2 proof sets advertised as being in their original US Mint display boxes. I always worry whether the proof-coins will be switched for non-proof coins. The sets arrived in a reasonable time, shipping was reasonable and the coins were authentic proofs. MCM so far has not let me down so I recommend buying from them.
