The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2019 American Eagle One Ounce Silver Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin (product code 19XE) on November 14 at noon EST. The coin is priced at $65.95 USD.
This coin has created a huge buzz in the collector and dealer community as everyone tries to figure out how to get as many as possible. Why? This coin will have the same mintage as the key coin in the series, the 1995-W Proof, which was only available in the 1995 10th Anniversary Gold Eagle Proof Set. In short, this is going to be an instant money maker.
We just went to eBay to see the pre-sale offers. They range generally from $400 to a high of $1,000. Might even be more. See for yourself … https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=2019+American+Eagle+One+Ounce+Silver+Enhanced+Reverse+Proof+Coin&_sacat=0&_pgn=2
And this doesn’t take into account what a Certified PR-70 is going to end up bringing… your guess is as good as ours. But we want to make sure that CoinWeek Collectors have the best chance to get one of these coins if that fits into your collecting plans.
A long-time collector favorite, this beautifully rendered coin is struck at the Mint’s San Francisco facility. Its obverse features Adolph A. Weinman’s classic Walking Liberty design depicting a full-length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. The reverse features a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.
Each coin is encapsulated and packaged in a blue velvet, satin-lined presentation case, placed in a classic blue outer box. For the first time, the Mint has numbered the Certificate of Authenticity that accompanies each coin. The number on each Certificate of Authenticity does not reflect the order in which each coin was minted.
Production of this coin is limited to 30,000 units. Orders will be limited to one per household indefinitely.
