2019-W $25 1-oz Palladium American Eagle Reverse Proof NGC PF70 First Day of Issue
FIRST-EVER Palladium American Eagle Reverse Proofs!
Ever since 2017 when the Palladium American Eagle joined its gold, silver & platinum brothers to become the U.S. Mint’s fourth precious metal in its flock of Eagle bullion coins, the response has been nothing short of staggering. Each year’s release has seen collectors clogging The Mint’s website causing sell-outs that can be measured in minutes! For the 2019 release, The Mint is taking the palladium series a step further with the First-Ever One-Ounce Palladium American Eagle Reverse Proof!
A Reverse Proof is like a regular proof except that regular proofs feature frosted details rising over mirror-like fields and Reverse Proof are just the opposite with mirror-like details rising over frosted fields. The effect is entirely unique and one collectors really enjoy. And, in addition to the exquisite beauty of palladium, these coins also feature time-honored designs created more than a century ago by Adolph A. Weinman, a noted sculptor who was also a student of the legendary Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
- The coin’s obverse features the iconic design from the “Mercury Dime” Winged Liberty. Struck from 1916-1945, the universally acclaimed Mercury Dime is today considered to be one of the most beautiful American coins ever struck by the U.S. Mint. The wings depicted on Miss Liberty’s head were supposed to represent freedom of thought, but for most people it looked like a depiction of the Roman god Mercury and the nickname stuck.
- The coin’s reverse features the design Weinman originally used for the 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal – a majestic American Eagle perched on a stone outcropping holding an olive branch. The AIA Gold Medal is the highest honor awarded by the AIA each year and was presented for the first time in 1907 with Weinman’s design. The U.S. Mint’s Palladium Eagle series is the first time this design has appeared on a United States coin!
These One-Ounce Palladium American Eagle Reverse Proofs were beautifully struck at the West Point Mint and at 34 mm in diameter, the coin is larger than a U.S. Half-Dollar and nearly twice the size of the Mercury Dimes that circulated during the Roaring Twenties, Great Depression and World War II. The larger size vividly showcases these brilliant designs in a way that certainly does them justice. In fact, to make this coin possible, the U.S. Mint worked with the AIA to use the original plaster of the AIA Gold Medal to create the dies for the Palladium Eagle series.
Your 2019-W One-Ounce Palladium American Eagle Reverse Proof has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in perfect Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In addition, NGC has certified this Palladium Eagle Reverse Proof to be a First Day of Issue (FDI) coin, meaning it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date. It will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a white display core.
