The Design of the 2017 Silver Eagle S Proof 70:
The S Mint Mark on the this coin refers to the mint it was struck in. This mark in particular designates that the coin was struck in San Francisco, California. You'll notice the design on either side of the coin carries a certain smoothness in the relief and field. This is due to them being struck as proof coins, which refers to the process of striking rather than the actual condition of the coin. Proof coins are also handled by actual individuals as opposed to being simply thrown into collection bins. Check out the obverse and reverse of the coin to see the excellent condition it's in. The obverse shows an iconic Walking Liberty design that was first created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinmen. Originally it went on a half-dollar coin; the design was incredibly popular with the public. The reverse of this Silver Eagle features the eponymous bird, wings outstretched in front of a shield. In one set of talons you can spot a bundle of arrows being grasped; the other set holds an olive branch, representing America's love of peace. This is also the side you can spot the mint mark on.
