2022-W Proof American Silver Eagle Now Slated For Mid-April Release From U.S. Mint

All the way back in November of 2021, the United States Mint tentatively released their production schedule for 2022. Back in December, we tentatively outlined some of those products and their prospective release dates and one of them was the anticipation of the 2022 Proof American Silver Eagle from West Point.

While originally slated for a February 3rd release, the Mint postponed the first American Silver Eagle product to a “TBD” status. Since then, they have most recently given the product another defined date of April 14th. All other details about the coin, including mintage limits and pricing, are unknown. We do, however, know that they will be available...read more

100 Greatest U.S. Coins Series: 1861 "Paquet Reverse" Liberty Head Double Eagle

Oftentimes the coins that make the top 100 Greatest United States Coins list as compiled by Whitman Publishing are those that are deemed experimental.
