The one-of-a-kind 2017 Congratulation Set was released on 4th of April 2017 and got immediately out of stock at the US Mint. The set contains the unique Proof Silver Eagle coin which carries the “S” mintmark and has one of the lowest mintages in the history of proof silver eagle series – just 75,000 pieces. This is the second lowest mintage after the US Mint issued only 30,000 proof silver eagles in 1995. This fact makes the 2017 special release a highly collectible coin and a must-have addition to any collection.

About the San Francisco Mint

The San Francisco facility of the US Mint was originally established in 1854, but in 1937 it changed its location from “The Granite Lady” Old Mint to the current New Mint facility. In 1986, the US Mint produced the first Proof American Silver Eagle at this branch. Proof Silver Eagles were struck with the “S” mintmark until 1992, being manufactured later at the Philadelphia (1993-2000) and West Point (2001-2008, 2009-today) branches. Occasionally, the US Mint produces special Silver Eagle issues at the San Francisco Mint, like this limited edition 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle.
