The initial release year of the American Silver Eagles saw sky-high demand for these all-new silver bullion and proof collectible coins. Heading into the start of the 1990s, the Proof Silver Eagle had rebounded in demand following the slump it experienced in the late 1980s.
Total mintage of 1990-S 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle coins finished at 695,510, marking another sales increase as well as the highest mintage figure the collectible version of the coin would see until 2001.
All 1991-S 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagles in this listing are considered perfect proof specimens by the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade feature full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws of any kind.
A coin with a UCAM finish is known as an ultra-cameo specimen. This indicates a coin with unique beauty derived from a strong, frosted matte finish on the design set and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. Coins with this finish are somewhat difficult to find from the 1990 release of Proof Silver Eagles.
On the obverse of the American Silver Eagle is the image of Walking Liberty, which was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman. Originally used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar circulation coin until 1947, it depicted Liberty walking toward a setting sun in the distance.
The reverse of all 1991 Proof American Silver Eagle coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. First used on American coinage from the Philadelphia Mint in 1794, this design has been updated and modernized countless times in US history. This particular design was refined by US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti in 1986.
