Information about the 1995-W 10th Anniversary American Eagle Proof Gold & Silver Set
The 10th Anniversary American Eagle Proof Gold and Silver set was struck to commemorate the beginning of the Silver Eagle series at the West Point Mint. A limited number of these sets were minted late in 1995, however they were initially not popular with collectors at the time. Few people had the foresight to realize the potential these sets had in the marketplace.
In 1995, the Proof Silver Eagles were being minted at Philadelphia; however, this set issued the first Proof Silver coin ever minted by West Point. The limited mintage of the 1995-W Proof Silver Eagles caused the value of the coin to skyrocket into what is now one of the most valuable modern rare silver coins to date.
The 1995-W 10th Anniversary Proof Gold and Silver Set includes a total of 1.85 troy ounces of proof American Eagle gold and the ultra rare 1 troy ounce of proof American Eagle silver. The gold comes in one ounce, half ounce, quarter ounce, and tenth ounce denominations.
