Why purchase this 2019-S 1 oz American Silver Eagle Proof?
The American Silver Eagle series is one of the most important series in modern numismatics. This proof version gives collectors the opportunity to view its two stunning designs with a different finish from the bullion coin. Unlike bullion strikes, the coin also has a mint mark, an "S," which indicates that it was struck at the San Francisco Mint. Like bullion pieces, this coin was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Traditional Great Seal Design by John Mercanti
The obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty half dollar, which was issued from 1916-1947. Liberty wears a Phrygian cap, a traditional symbol of freedom from slavery, and she is draped in the American flag. She extends her right hand in front of her, as though greeting the new day as the sun emerges from beyond the horizon. In her left hand, she bears symbols of civilian and military honors, laurel and oak branches, respectively.
The coin's reverse design was created by John Mercanti, who went on to serve as the US Mint's Chief Engraver. Adapted from the Great Seal of the United States, it features an eagle guarding a union shield. The bird holds a ribbon with the words 'E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) in its beak and arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The arrows serve as reminders that America will fight to defend her values, while the olive branch indicates a preference for peace. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim.

Ultra Cameo coins show particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields, while First Day of Issue pieces were submitted to the company through an exclusive process.
