2012 Silver Eagle Reverse PR69 First Strike PCGS (S) Coin w/ Slab

Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the San Francisco Mint, the 2012 American Eagle San Francisco Reverse Proof is an exquisite coin that captures the essence and beauty of the silver eagle. Silver Eagles are the official silver bullion coins of the United States. First released in 1986, they feature the Walking Liberty design that was originally used between 1916 and 1947 on the obverse of the half-dollar coin. This design by Adolph A. Weinman was deemed such a coinage classic, as well as public favorite, that it was revived for the modern Silver Eagle years later. On the reverse of these beautiful coins is an eagle design by John Mercanti. This 2012 version is very unique as it was the second year that the US Mint produced a Silver Eagle at the San Francisco mint that was not a Proof coin. The coin is graded by NGC and has the special Golden Gate Bridge label. This is very highly sought after by collectors and numismatist's alike!
