1990 Proof American Silver Eagle: A Collector's Guide and Valuation

The 1990 Proof American Silver Eagle emerges as a prestigious collectible treasure, acclaimed for its sophisticated design, superior artisanship, and significant precious metal worth. This proof edition marks a special contribution to the American Silver Eagle series, introduced by the United States Mint in 1986.

The U.S. Mint Proof Silver Eagle series is highly esteemed for incorporating one of the most revered designs in the legacy of American coinage and numismatics, attracting attention for its investment potential and allure to collectors due to its silver content and purity.

Even though these proof silver American Eagle coins are nominally valued at one dollar, the actual metal value they encompass far exceeds the $1 USD threshold.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: The 1990 Proof American Silver Eagle composition consists of .999 fine silver, achieving a 99.9% purity level, thereby enhancing its appeal to numismatists and precious metal investors alike. It is approved for IRA contributions.

  • Weight: The coin's weight is 31.103 grams, or 1 troy ounce, adhering to the Silver Eagle series' standards.

  • Diameter: At a diameter of 40.6 mm, the coin offers a generous area to exhibit its elaborate designs.

  • Thickness: A thickness of 2.98 mm endows the coin with a durable and solid feel.

  • Edge: The coin features a reeded edge with 201 reeds, contributing to its tactile attractiveness.

  • Iconic Design: The coin's obverse is adorned with the esteemed "Walking Liberty" by Adolph A. Weinman, and the reverse showcases John Mercanti's heraldic eagle design.

  • Mintage: The 1990 production of Proof American Silver Eagles totaled 695,510, denoting it as a limited edition and highlighting its exclusivity.

  • Mint Location: These US Mint silver coins were produced at the San Francisco Mint, indicated by the "S" mint mark on the reverse.

  • Collectibility: The proof condition, characterized by its mirror-like finish, significantly boosts its collectible appeal.

  • Certificate of Authenticity: Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

Design and Designer:

The coin's obverse features the iconic "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman, first seen on the Half Dollar coin from 1916 to 1947. This depiction shows Lady Liberty progressing forward, enveloped in the stars and stripes flag, extending her right hand and carrying branches of laurel and oak in her left. She strides toward a rising sun, with 13 sunrays, representing the original thirteen colonies.

The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, portrays a heraldic eagle with a shield of liberty, clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons, below 13 stars for the original colonies. The eagle also carries a banner in its beak, inscribed with “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

The 1990 Proof American Silver Eagle stands as a testament to the United States Mint's dedication to craftsmanship and a significant piece of American numismatic heritage. Its blend of artistic design and precious metal content continues to enchant collectors and investors alike.

These 1990 Proof American Silver Eagles are offered as non-graded, standard condition, proof coins, and are valued higher than ordinary silver bullion coins.
