Why order this 2019-W American Silver Eagle Proof?
The American Silver Eagle tradition dates back to 1986, and its stunning designs and US government backing have helped to grow it into the world's most popular coin. This proof corollary to the bullion series offers collectors the opportunity to appreciate those designs with a different finish. This coin was struck on a one ounce planchet of .999 fine silver at the West Point Mint, which is represented by a "W" mint mark.
Traditional Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman's design for the half dollar, Walking Liberty, was revived when the Silver Eagle series began. Liberty wears a Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom, on her head and is draped in the American flag. She carries with her branches of laurel and oak, which are representative of honors bestowed upon civilians and military members, respectively. The allegorical figure stretches her right hand in front of her, as though presenting the morning sun, which rises below, to the holder.
On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti. An eagle guards a union shield while holding arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The arrows indicate that America is willing to defend her values when necessary, while the olive branch represents a preference for peace. Above the eagle's head are thirteen stars, one for each of the original states.
