Proof Silver American Eagles were introduced in 1986 along with the bullion version of the coin. Both products have a 1 Troy ounce weight and contain .999 fine silver content. The Proof Silver Eagle is visually different courtesy of its matte design elements and mirrored background fields that create visual contrast when viewed.
While the bullion version of the coin has been available in every year since 1986, the Proof Silver American Eagle was not issued in 2009. In the midst of the Great Recession and skyrocketing silver prices, the US Mint faced a crunch to find silver blanks to coin the Silver Eagles. The proof product was shelved that year to focus all available blanks on bullion production as the US Mint is legally obligated to strike those coins to meet investor demand.
On the obverse of all 2019 Proof Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Walking Liberty. Designed in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, it features Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun rising on the horizon. Her right hand is outstretched, the American flag is draped over her shoulders, and her left hand holds the oak and laurel branches.
The reverse of 2019-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle coins features the heraldic eagle of the United States. First issued on US coins in 1794, this is a modernized version of the symbol created in 1986 by John Mercanti of the United States Mint.
These 2019-W 1 oz Proof Silver Eagles come with a US Mint commemorative box and feature a Certificate of Authenticity with purchase. The coins also feature a “W” mint mark to denote the West Point Mint was the striking facility.
