Every 1997 Proof American Silver Eagle in this listing has achieved the highest grade, PR70, from the PCGS. These coins exhibit full mint luster with no detracting flaws. The deep-cameo designation indicates a frosted matte finish on the design sets and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field for proof coins.


The obverse of the 1997-P Proof American Silver Eagle features Adolph A. Weinmans timeless Walking Liberty design, brought out of retirement after 39 years for the American Silver Eagle.


On the reverse of 1997-P 1 oz Proof Silver Eagle Coins, you’ll find John Mercantis modernized heraldic eagle, first used by the US Mint in 1794.


Through much of the 1990s, the American Silver Eagle experienced declining sales due to a robust US economy and a strong dollar. The lowest point was in 1996, with only 4.1 million coins sold. However, in 1997, sales saw a slight increase to 4.7 million coins, signaling the start of four consecutive years of rising demand. This uptick was largely driven by concerns about the Y2K issue and its potential impact on banking and the economy.
