Why buy this 2019-W Proof Silver American Eagle?
This stunning Proof Silver Eagle presents you with the opportunity to be part of a three-plus decade tradition in numismatic excellence. The coin remains in GEM Proof condition and comes in its original mint packaging, a blue velvet, satin-lined presentation case. It also comes with a certificate of authenticity. The coin was struck on a one ounce .999 fine silver planchet at the West Point Mint and bears that mint's "W" mint mark on the reverse.
Historic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
On the coin's obverse is Adolph Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design, which previously featured on the half dollar from 1916-1947 before making a comeback with the Silver Eagle series in 1986. Liberty strides toward the left side of the coin carrying laurel and oak branches in her left hand. The laurel branches represent civilian honors, while the oak branches represent military ones. The allegorical figure is draped in the American flag and extends her right hand forward, as though presenting the emerging morning sun to the holder.
John Mercanti, who would go on to become the US Mint's Chief Engraver, crated the reverse design for the debut of the series in 1986. Mercanti modeled the image off of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle clutches arrows in one talon, indicating that America is willing to defend her values, and an olive branch in the other, representing a desire for peace. The bird spreads its wings upward as it protects a union shield under an arrangement of thirteen stars, which are symbols of the original states.

In October of 2019, U.S Mint officials announced that they will be introducing new designs to the reverses of both the American Silver Eagle and American Gold Eagle beginning with the bullion versions of both coins in 2021.
Adolph Weinman's numismatic legacy cannot be understated. His designs were and continue to be some of the most recognizable and prized among collectors, such as the obverse of the beloved American Silver Eagle, and both faces of the recently debuted American Palladium Eagle series-which is getting its first reverse proof variety in September.
