2019 - Pride of Two Nations - Pure Silver Proof Coin Two-Coin Set. To celebrate the two countries' independent spirit and long-standing partnership, the Royal Canadian Mint and United States Mint are proud to join together in presenting the 2019 Pride of Two Nations Limited Edition Two-Coin Set. This beautifully rendered and unique special set commemorates Canada's and the United States' nationhood with coins that capture their rich history, pride, and close relationship as neighbours and partners.
This first-ever two-coin set features a Royal Canadian Mint One Ounce Silver Maple Leaf Coin with a modified proof finish and a United States Mint American Eagle One Ounce Silver Coin with an enhanced reverse proof finish. Modified Proof Finish : A proof coin is one with the highest possible qualitya frosted image is struck against a brilliant background as many as three times to achieve an incredibly crisp impression with amazing detail. The inscriptions on a proof coin are normally frosted. The inscriptions, however, have the same natural shine of silver as the other design elements instead of a frosted appearance, creating a "modified" proof finish.
Enhanced Reverse Proof Finish: A standard reverse proof coin is one featuring an "inverted" proof finish. The background is frosted, while the design elements are polished to the same mirror-like finish, creating a magnificent contrast. An "enhanced" reverse proof coin has the same frosted background as a reverse proof, but different design element finishes. The American Eagle Silver Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin has multiple polished and frosted finishes assigned to different isolated design elements.
The selective polishing and frosting dramatically enhances the visual impact of its designs. Both finishes were created specifically for the coins featured in this set. Walter Ott (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse). John Mercanti (reverse), Adolph A. I do leave feedback for everyone.
