1999 Proof American Silver Eagle: A Collector's Guide to the Rare Coin

The 1999 Proof American Silver Eagle asserts its position as a distinguished collectible item, celebrated for its outstanding design, exemplary craftsmanship, and considerable value in precious metals. This proof version is a prominent addition to the American Silver Eagle series, initiated by the United States Mint in 1986.

Renowned for embodying one of the most acclaimed designs in the history of American coinage and numismatics, the U.S. Mint Proof Silver Eagle series also garners attention for its investment viability and appeal to collectors, attributed to its composition and purity of silver.

Although these US Mint proof American Eagle silver coins are nominally valued at one dollar, the melt metal value significantly surpasses the $1 USD mark.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: The 1999 Proof American Silver Eagle comprises .999 fine silver, reaching a purity level of 99.9%, which bolsters its allure to both numismatists and investors in precious metals. It is also suitable for IRA investments.

  • Weight: The coin has a weight of 31.103 grams, equivalent to 1 troy ounce, maintaining the standard of the Silver Eagle series.

  • Diameter: With a diameter of 40.6 mm, the coin provides an extensive surface to display its intricate designs.

  • Thickness: Its thickness of 2.98 mm imparts a solid and substantial feel.

  • Edge: The coin is designed with a reeded edge containing 201 reeds, enhancing its tactile appeal.

  • Iconic Design: The obverse features the esteemed "Walking Liberty" by Adolph A. Weinman, while the reverse showcases John Mercanti's heraldic eagle design.

  • Mintage: In 1999, the issuance of Proof American Silver Eagles reached 549,769, marking it as a limited edition and underscoring its rarity.

  • Mint Location: These coins were minted at the Philadelphia Mint, as denoted by the "P" mint mark on the reverse.

  • Collectibility: The proof quality, characterized by its mirror-like finish, greatly amplifies its attractiveness to collectors.

  • Certificate of Authenticity: Each coin includes a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

Design and Designer:

The coin's obverse is adorned with Adolph A. Weinman's iconic "Walking Liberty" design, initially featured on the Half Dollar coin from 1916 to 1947. This portrayal depicts Lady Liberty advancing forward, draped in the stars and stripes flag, extending her right hand and clutching branches of laurel and oak in her left. She progresses towards a rising sun with 13 sunrays, symbolizing the original thirteen colonies.

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

The 1999 Proof American Silver Eagle is a testament to the United States Mint's unwavering commitment to excellence and a vital component of American numismatic heritage. Its fusion of artistic design and precious metal content remains a source of fascination for collectors and investors alike.

These 1999 Proof American Silver Eagles are presented as non-graded, standard condition, proof coins and are esteemed above standard silver bullion coins.
