The newest Silver Eagle is being released by the US Mint on August 9, 2022. Struck at the San Francisco Mint, the 2022-S Proof Silver Eagles have a product limit of only 200,000.

Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) is offering a selection of special labels to complement the certified coins, including the San Francisco Cable Car label and the popular NGC Early Releases and First Releases labels.

The American Silver Eagles have been a popular collectible ever since their release in 1986. More recently, these venerable coins celebrated their 35th anniversary — an important milestone that included enhanced security features and a new reverse design.

The 2022-S Proof Silver Eagle obverse retains Adolf A. Weinman’s iconic Walking Liberty figure; but, with the use of advanced technology, the design details align more closely to Weinman’s original vision. In addition, the reed variation along the edge provides higher security against counterfeiting.

The reverse shows an eagle coming in for a landing, an exciting design that was first introduced in 2021. It was engraved by acclaimed medallic artist Michael Gaudioso, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. The 2022-S Proof Silver Eagles certified with the NGC Michael Gaudioso Signature Label will be available through select retailers.
