The burnished silver eagles have a unique look to them. Burnished coins have a matte-like finish and they appear less shiny.
Proof coins are essentially coins that have more detail. They are minted on special planchets and it takes longer to produce them. Each proof coin originally comes in a US Mint issued velvet box and a certificate of authorization (COA).
The reverse proof silver eagles are special edition coins that were minted for the 75th anniversary of the San Francisco Mint. These 2012 S reverse proof silver eagles were only sold as part of a two-coin set that also included the 2012 S proof silver eagle. Each reverse proof coin has a brilliant mirror-like appearance.
