A slight drop in the price of silver for the year may have had some influence on the mintage increase. The precious metal averaged $5.20 an ounce, down $.08 from the previous year.

These coins also marked the 10th anniversary strikes of the program which debuted in 1986. To celebrate this fact, the US Mint struck special Proof Silver Eagles at its facility in West Point to be included in the "10th Anniversary American Eagle Five Coin Set" containing the silver strike and the four different sizes of the Gold American Eagle.
