Proof American Silver Eagle Coins were once available from the US Mint in this series with a mintage cap for each release. However, by the mid-1990s, the US Mint had abandoned the use of mintage caps to allow for collector demand to determine the final mintage of the coins. This was also done, in part, because no release year ever reached the originally established mintage caps.
At the end of the 1990s, demand was on the rise for the Proof American Silver Eagle after nearly a decade of slumping interest. Following the 1986 and 1987 releases, the demand for the collectible version of the coin followed a steady downward trend. This continued until 1999 when the series moved back above 500,000 coins sold for just the third time in the 1990s and the first time since 1996.
On the obverse side of the 1999-P 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle is Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the image features Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse face of 1999-P Proof American Silver Eagle Coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. A historic emblem that dates to the founding of the country, the heraldic eagle was modernized for this release in 1986.
These 1999-P 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins have near-perfect certifications. Coins in PR69 condition showcase full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws must be located outside the primary focal points and are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines. DCAM designations apply to coins with strong, frosted designs overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
