Safely packed away yet ready for display. 2019-W Enhanced Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle. The American Silver Eagle in this set is struck by the West Point branch of the U. Mint and will carry that facilitys iconic W Mint mark. What sets this coin aside from any other American Silver Eagle, however, is the fact that it will carry a finish never seen before on a Silver EagleDubbed an Enhanced Reverse Proof, this finish will provide a detailed arrangement of frosted, semi-frosted, and mirrored areas of the design. The effect is very similar to what was seen on the 2013 Enhanced Uncirculated American Silver Eagles, but reversed! This finish is applied to the surface of a coin struck multiple times to ensure the finest possible detail. 2019 Modified Proof Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. In contrast with the Silver Eagle, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf will carry what the RCM is calling a Modified Proof finish. Has been used to describe Silver Maple finishes before, but never one as unique as this. The finish will provide not only frosted devices and mirrored fields, but also a stunning pattern of etched maples, star, and stripes on its field. This drastic effect provides a physical display of the U. And Canadian collaboration on this program. Collectors may be interested to discover that the RCM is unable to strike a simple Proof Silver Maple Leaf. This not due to any technological constraints, but simply because they said they wouldnt! Back in 1989, the Royal Canadian Mint issued the first-ever (and what would be the last-ever) Proof Silver Maple Leaf to commemorate the 10. Anniversary of the series. A strict stipulation placed on the set was that no other simple Proof Maples could be struck. Now 30 years later, the RCM is still forced to find innovate ways to not only one-up a typical proof finish, but also get around their own restrictions!
