Why order this American 2019-W Proof Silver Eagle?
This 2019-W Silver Eagle Proof is the latest edition in a series that began in 1986. It is the proof counterpart to the world's most famous bullion coin. It bears the same designs as that coin and, like it, was struck at the West Point Mint on a one ounce planchet of .999 fine silver. Unlike the bullion version of the coin, it has a sleek proof finish and bears the West Point Mint's "W" mint mark on the reverse.
Traditional Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
The designs on both faces of the coin have remained constant since the series began in 1986. The obverse is taken from the Walking Liberty half dollar, which was the creation of Adolph Weinman. Liberty wears a Phrygian cap on her head and is draped in the American flag as she walks toward the left side of the coin. She carries with her branches of laurel and oak in her left hand. The former symbolize civilian honors while the latter represent military ones. Liberty stretches her right hand forward, as if welcoming the new day, while the morning sun rises below.
The Great Seal of the United States served as the model for John Mercanti's reverse design. At the center is a union shield, which is guarded by an eagle. The eagle holds a ribbon in its beak and arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is on the ribbon. The arrows represent a willingness to defend the nation's values, while the olive branch indicates a preference for peace. The eagle is under a triangular arrangement of thirteen stars, which represent the original states.
Nearly Perfect PF69 UC ER Blue Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their second highest grade, Proof 69, which means that it is almost flawless as seen by the naked eye. NGC also certified the coin Early Releases and Ultra Cameo. Early Releases were received for grading within thirty days of their initial mint release, while Ultra Cameo means that its deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices contrast especially sharply. This information is provided on a blue label.
