Five nations, five flawless silver coins. That’s the theme of this attractive 2019 Silver World Coin Set. Each piece comes from a different nation known for striking beautiful, government-backed silver bullion coins. What’s more, each piece comes graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
Your tour begins right here in the United States with a 2019-W BURNISHED SILVER EAGLE, featuring a satin-like finish that is struck in relatively small mintages. This coin comes certified as Early Releases and features a label signed by John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint and the designer of the Silver Eagle’s reverse.
Next, you’ll set sail across the South Atlantic Ocean to South Africa, where you’ll find a 2019 ONE-OUNCE SILVER KRUGERRAND. Just the second-ever silver bullion coin to feature the classic Krugerrand design, it comes certified as a First Releases (FR) coin.

A new one-year-only design by Mercanti, it’s from the first foreign series to feature designs from a former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver. This coin also comes encapsulated in an acrylic holder with a unique Australian flag core and an exclusive label personally hand-signed by Mercanti.
Next up is China, where we find another one-year-only design: the 2019 30-GRAM SILVER PANDA. Certified as First Day of Issue (FDI) coin, it also has the designation of being Struck at the Shenzhen Mint, an important piece of information for a coin with no mint mark! This Silver Panda also comes in an acrylic holder and encapsulated with a label personally signed by the coin’s designer, Tong Fang.
Finally, you’ll return to North America with the 2019 ONE-OUNCE SILVER INCUSE MAPLE LEAF from Canada. Also a second-year issue, this coin displays its eponymous emblem struck below the surface of the coin rather than above it. This beauty comes certified as a First Day of Issue (FDI) coin and displays a label commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf series.
