The reverse proof finish is the first of this type of format on a U.S. coin. However, prior to 2006, many different world coins have been struck with the Reverse Proof format. The designs feature a brilliant mirror like appearance, while the fields display a satin like finish. The 2006 Reverse Proof Silver eagle was produced in order to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Silver Eagle coin program.
