1995 American silver eagles are bullion coins that contain one ounce of .999-fine silver. This highly popular silver bullion coin series has been in production since 1986, and have grown to become one of the most widely recognized bullion coin series around the world. This is a major selling factor for American eagle bullion coins, as this makes them easy to sell virtually anywhere.
Another major reason why American silver eagles are so widely purchased is that they feature one of the most beautiful coin designs ever made: the Walking Liberty design, first created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916 for use on the half dollar. The reverse of the American silver eagle exhibits a heraldic eagle, which was designed by John Mercanti.
Millions of American silver eagles were made in 1995, which also happened to be the 10th anniversary of the coin. This occasion prompted the striking not only of the usual Philadelphia uncirculated and proof specimens, but also a special West Point mint proof which was only sold in sets that also contained the 1/10-, 1/4-, 1/2-, and 1-ounce American gold eagle coins.
The 1995 West Point proof American silver eagle, of which only 30,125 were struck, is the key coin in the entire series, carrying a value of around $4,000 in Proof-68. Even the Philadelphia proof, with a mintage of 438,511, has a price tag of about $150. The uncirculated specimen is the most common variety of the year, with 4,672,051 pieces struck; its value is a few dollars over prevailing spot price.
