The 2019 Enhanced Reverse Proof is the newest incarnation of the Silver American Eagle, and the first time the finish is being offered on a stand-alone Silver Eagle piece. These coins sold out in 18 minutes from the U.S. Mint with a limited mintage of only 30,000 - the lowest mintage of an American Silver Eagle to date. As NGC points out, this quantity is even less than the highly sought after 1995-W Silver Eagle Proof. With such low strike numbers, the Enhanced Reverse Proof 2019 Eagle has already gained status as a hot-ticket item and has been met with fanfare and celebration from the investment sector.
Carrying forth the legacy of the Silver American Eagle series, the 2019 Enhanced Reverse Proof edition bears Adolph A. Weinman’s beloved “Walking Liberty” design on its obverse. The design features a remarkable and modern portrayal of Lady Liberty striding confidently toward a beaming sun cresting over a majestic mountain range. A billowing American flag envelopes Liberty, who holds her right arm outstretched toward the light and cradles a bundle of laurel and oak branches in her left arm. Also mimicking previous Silver Eagles, the reverse of the Enhanced Reverse Proof features a stately heraldic eagle donning a striped shield over its chest. The bird clasps an olive branch in its right talon and a bundle of arrows in its left, while thirteen five-pointed stars hover over its head. In its beak, the eagle clenches a flowing ribbon stitched with the U.S. motto, “E Pluribus Unum.” The reverse also features the coin’s one troy-ounce weight in “FINE SILVER” and its “ONE DOLLAR” face value.
Enhanced Reverse Proofs feature frosted fields and mirror-like devices, but what makes this unique iteration stand out is the presence of polishing and frosting applied to multiple isolated areas of the coin’s design. As the Mint points out, this selective finishing “dramatically enhances the visual impact” of the Silver Eagle’s classic design.
