Since 2021, under the leadership of David Ryder, the United States Mint has made available a small group of the first American Silver Eagle coins struck prior to the official release date. These coins are known as Advance Release coins and have quickly developed into the most sought-after coins on the market. The coveted Advance Release designation is an official United States Mint term and is only available on a few select coin series like this 2023 American Silver Eagle Proof strike coin minted at the revered San Francisco Mint. First issued in 1986, the American Silver Eagle has become the most collected silver coin in the world surpassing even the iconic Morgan Silver Dollar!


An extremely low mintage of 24,500 San Francisco Mint proof strike coins were designated as Advance Release coins by the United States Mint.

Proof coins have a mirror-like background.

Moy, and David Ryder.
