Why Add This PF69 1991-S Proof Silver Eagle to Your Collection?
For the first few years that the American Silver Eagle was issued, the proofs were struck at the San Francisco Mint. These early “S” proof Silver Eagles keep getting harder to find as the series goes on. This proof Silver Eagle was struck in 1991. In 1991, the San Francisco Mint produced 511,924 proof Silver Eagles. While this isn’t one of the lowest numbers of the series, it certainly isn’t high. The front of this 1991-S proof Silver Eagle shows Liberty walking in front of the sun. This is a modernized version of the Walking Liberty design created by Weinman. The reverse displays a heraldic bald eagle that was designed by John Mercanti.
This 1991-S proof Silver Eagle was submitted to NGC for grading. Using their 70 point grading scale, the NGC experts gave this coin the grade of PF69. To the naked eye, it is virtually identical to a perfect PF70. Additionally, the Ultra Cameo designation was given because this proof Silver Eagle has great visual contrast.
