The United States Mint has announced that the 2019 American Eagle silver proof coin will be available starting Tuesday, August 6, 2019. Sales of the 1 ounce silver coin will start at Noon Eastern, 9:00 am Pacific.
This year, the proof American Eagle is priced at $55.95. It comes with its traditional blue presentation case along with a certificate of authenticity from the Mint. Identical to the uncirculated variant released earlier this year in May, the proof Eagle carries the S mint mark as it is minted in San Francisco.
As has been the case with other Eagles, there is no mintage limit on this year’s proof silver coin so the Mint will keep making them throughout the rest of 2019. Equally good news, there is no limit to the number a household can buy. If you are looking for a unique gift for family and friends, this could be a good choice to consider.
The Mint has already setup the product page for the coin and you can visit it at this link. Further, you can use the “Remind me” function on the page to have the Mint email or text you when sales start on the 6th. Unlike some of the recent commemoratives, there isn’t as big a rush to buy on the first day (unless you are wanting a special designation from NGC or PCGS if you submit it for grading) and the Mint will likely keep them in stock for some time.
