Certified Silver Eagle coins undergo a grading process that looks into the condition of the surface elements and design features of the coin to assign it a grade from 0 to 70. Known as the Sheldon scale, this numeric listing typically consists of coins in MS70 or MS69 condition, with the former representing a perfect grade and the latter a near-perfect grade.
All 2019 1 oz Silver American Eagles in this listing have a Mint State 69 certification from the NGC. Coins with the MS69 grade feature full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are typically found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin and are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
On the reverse of 2019 Silver American Eagle coins is the heraldic eagle of the United States. Depicting the American bald eagle with the national shield before it, the design includes the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in the eagle’s talons. There is a triangular cluster of 13 stars above the eagle’s head as well.
The obverse side of 2019 1 oz Silver American Eagles features the effigy of Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, this design formerly featured on the US half dollar and depicts Liberty as she walks toward the sun on the horizon. The design includes the American flag over her shoulders and the leaves of oak and laurel in her left hand.
All Silver Eagles are currently struck by the West Point Mint. Bullion coins have no mint marks. Silver Eagle bullion coins were initially struck at the San Francisco Mint (1986-1998) and then briefly at the Philadelphia Mint (1999-2000).
