Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2018-S American Silver Eagle Proof coin?
The U.S. Mint introduced the American Silver Eagle series in 1986. To meet demand for the popular series, the Mint currently offers the coin in three different finishes, struck at multiple Mints. This 2018 proof was struck at the San Francisco Mint from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.

The obverse features a revival of the cherished image of Lady Liberty enveloped in the flag of the United States, originally designed by Adolph A. Weinman for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2018" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Thirteen stars hover above a heraldic eagle on the reverse. The design by John Mercanti is surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the "S" Mint mark.
