2019-S Proof Silver Eagles: Special NGC Labels and Designations Available

Posted on 7/29/2019

The US Mint is releasing a second Proof Silver Eagle, this one struck at San Francisco. Special submission instructions must be followed. See the "Submission Instructions" section of this article.

The US Mint will open sales of the 2019-S Proof Silver Eagle on August 6. Struck at San Francisco, this is the second mint location to strike Proof Silver Eagles this year. The West Point Mint, which strikes most Proof Silver Eagles, released its version in January.

Minted since 1986, the Silver Eagle has broad appeal to collectors for both its metal content and the beauty of its design. The obverse features the venerable design from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, while the reverse showcases a heraldic eagle from John Mercanti, the renowned former Chief Engraver of the US Mint. The 2019-S Proof Silver Eagle includes the 'S' mintmark of the San Francisco Mint.

A special San Francisco label is available with one of the city's famed cable cars depicted on it.
