2019 Pride of Two Nations Coin Set - U.S. Mint American Silver Eagle and Royal Canadian Mint Silver Maple Leaf - NGC Certified Proof-70 Early Release with Flag Label - Key Dates with Low Mintage
This Limited Edition Set is a numismatic collaboration between two world renowned mints - the Royal Canadian Mint and the United States Mint - featuring their flagship silver bullion coins, the Maple Leaf and the American Eagle. These coins have been certified by one of the premier grading companies, NGC, as Proof-70 Early Release.
The partnership itself is not the only first, the American Silver Eagle features a never before seen enhanced reverse proof finish and the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf features a new Modified Proof finish! The Silver Eagle shows enhancement of the stripes on Lady Liberty's dress and the stars on the flag wrapped around Lady Liberty's shoulders. The Silver Maple Leaf takes a new approach to the design as the Sugar Maple Leaf is encircled by 2 rows of mini maple leaves and 2 rows of 5 point stars (a nod to both mints).
The coins are encapsulated and presented in a two coin leather presentation case featuring emblems of both countries flags on the inner cover with a bilingual (English and French) Certificate of Authenticity. The total mintage limit of the set is 110,000 with 100,00 available for sale in the U.S. and 10,000 available for sale in Canada.
