Both the 2022-W and 2022-S American proof silver Eagles have been graded a perfect PR70 by the Professional Coin Grading Service.
This 2022 issue, the second Type 2 release, was struck at the West Point Mint from 1 oz of.999 fine silver. By the middle of 2021, the Type 2 had completely superseded the Type 1. There is a new design on the back of the Type 2 design, as well as a new security feature, and Adolph Weinman's artist mark appears on the front.
The obverse depicts a flag-draped Liberty, holding laurel and oak branches in the dawn light. Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar provided the inspiration for this design. The year "2022," the national motto "IN GOD WE TRUST," and her name, "LIBERTY," are all inscribed on the obverse. Adolph Weinman left Germany for America when he was just a teenager. He was a famous sculptor who played a major role in the revival of American coinage at the turn of the twentieth century.
On the flip side, artist Emily Damstra depicted a soaring eagle preparing to land with an oak branch in its talons. The words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR," and "1 OZ. FINE SILVER" are inscribed along the circumference of the coin. You'll also notice the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" engraved there. U of M alumna Emily Damstra has some impressive credentials. Since 2017, her artwork has been featured on U.S. currency.
