Each of the 1999-P 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles listed here comes to you in near-perfect certification. The PCGS assigns a PR69 grade to coins that exhibit full, original mint luster and have no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
The included DCAM label stands for deep-cameo and refers to the distinctive visual brilliance of the coins. DCAM coins have strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. These contrasting visual elements result in the design appearing to float above the field of the coin.
The obverse of 1999-P 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles includes a bust of Walking Liberty. Adolph A. Weinman designed Walking Liberty in 1916 and the image was first used on the US half dollar from 1916 to 1947. The visual element shows Liberty walking from right to left with her right hand reaching out toward the sun on the horizon as her left-hand carries branches of oak and laurel.
On the reverse field of the 1999 1 oz Proof Silver Eagle is a depiction of the modern heraldic eagle of the United States. The heraldic eagle is the emblem representing the federal government and depicts a front-facing eagle with the US national shield, arrows of war, and olive branch of peace. The design also includes a triangular cluster of 13 stars above the head of the eagle. These proof coins have a “P” mint mark from the Philadelphia Mint.
