As the Proof American Silver Eagle Series went into the 1990s, demand for the coins saw a brief uptick in 1989 and 1990. This culminated in the 1990-S release with an announced mintage of 695,510 coins. After 1990, the series saw a sustained period of low demand throughout the entirety of the 1990s. In fact, the Proof Silver Eagle would not surpass the 1990 mintage figure until 2001 when 746,000 coins were sold.
All of these 1990-S 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins are available to you for purchase online in near-perfect condition. The PCGS assigns a PR69 grade to coins that have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade level are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines only and these must be located outside of the primary fields of the coin.
The included DCAM label issued to these coins indicates the above-average quality of the cameo-proof strike. The coins have strong, frosted design elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse of 1990-S Proof American Silver Eagle Coins is Walking Liberty. The design was created in 1916 and first used on the US half dollar until 1947. Created by Adolph A. Weinman, the image features Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse field of the 1990-S 1 oz Proof Silver Eagle comes with an image of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The national emblem representing the federal government, this version includes a powerful eagle supporting the US national shield as it clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
