Each of the 1-ounce .999 fine silver medals was struck at one of the four U.S. Mint production facilities, with each medal exhibiting a different finish:

??The Proof medal carries the S Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint.

??The Reverse Proof medal carries the P Mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint.

??The Uncirculated medal carries the D Mint mark of the Denver Mint.

??The Enhanced Uncirculated medal carries the W Mint mark of the West Point Mint.

The set is the second product to feature a 2017 American Liberty silver medal. On June 14, the U.S. Mint began offering a standard 2017-P American Liberty silver medal individually at $59.95, with no product limit or household ordering restrictions. As of the Mint's Oct. 15 sales report, the Mint recorded sales of 46,962 of the single silver Proof Philadelphia medal.
