2010-W Proof Silver Eagle
While everyone has come to expect the Silver Eagle to be issued in at least a regular and proof finish every year, this didn’t happen in 2009. After 2008, the next proof Silver Eagle was this coin, the 2010. Unfortunately, the 2010 proof Silver Eagle had rather average mintage figures, but at least production of these coins resumed.
PCGS PR70 DCAM 2010 W Proof Silver Eagle
This 2010 W proof Silver Eagle was graded by PCGS. As one of the world’s most trusted grading firms, the first step when any coin is submitted is to check it for authenticity. Not only is this coin guaranteed authentic, it’s as good as it gets. This coin received the grade of Proof 70, the highest possible grade.
The Deep Cameo designation is often seen on high grade proof coins, but some collectors don’t know exactly why it is given. Take a look at how bright Liberty or the bald eagle look. Now notice how dark the background is in comparison. This stark contrast that practically produces a black and white look is why the DCAM designation is given.2010 West Point Proof Silver Eagle Design
As is expected from the Silver Eagle, the 2010 proof displays Liberty walking across the sunny landscape with one arm outstretched on the obverse. The date, “2010” is at the bottom of this side. At the top is the word “LIBERTY” and this side also has the inscription “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
The reverse of the Silver Eagle was designed by John Mercanti. This side depicts a bald eagle with a bundle of arrows and an olive branch. A banner held by the eagle’s beak reads “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The rest of the inscriptions read “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
