Collectors and dealers line up at the Whitman Expo in Baltimore in hopes of scoring a 2019 Reverse Proof Silver Eagle

On Thursday November 14th, the U.S. Mint released the first ever Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle with an Enhanced finished both online and in person at the Whitman Baltimore Expo. The release price was $65.95 with a mintage of 30,000 coins and an order limit of one per household. Because of the low mintage and expected demand, numerous large wholesale dealers were offering instant profits to those who were able to acquire one at the show. Reports are the prevailing offer is $250 per coin. The in-person release was calm and well-organized, with buyers queuing up outside of the show floor and being brought in in groups of roughly 25 people at a time. Mint products such as these generate much excitement and speculation, and it will be interesting to see how these coins fare in the secondary market.
