The obverse side of the 1996-P Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin has the vision of Walking Liberty created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. Used on the half dollar from 1916 to 1947, Walking Liberty is a full portrait of Liberty in left-profile relief depicting her as she walks toward the sun on the horizon.
On the reverse of 1996-P Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin is the heraldic eagle of the United States. The heraldic eagle was modified for this coin release in 1986 by John Mercanti. It depicts the bald eagle with the national shield on its chest.
1996 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins had a total mintage of500,000 coins. This is the fifth-lowest mintage in the programs history and occurred during a general time of low interest in silver, generally speaking, and in the collectible version of the American Eagle Silver Coins. At this point in the history of the program, all coins were produced at the Philadelphia Mint with a P mint mark visible on the reverse design field.
These 1996-P Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins come sealed inside of a protective plastic slab to ensure the continued PF70 condition of the coin for decades to come.
