NGC Announces Unique Label for US-Canada ‘Pride of Two Nations’ Set

by CoinNews.net on June 28, 2019 · 9 comments

The US Mint has announced the Pride of Two Nations 2019 Limited Edition Two-Coin Set, which will go on sale July 3. It combines a 2019-W US Silver Eagle with an Enhanced Reverse Proof finish and a 2019 Canadian One Ounce Silver Maple Leaf with a Modified Proof finish.

NGC Labels 2019-W Enhanced Reverse Proof Silver Eagle and 2019 Modified Proof Silver Maple Leaf

Examples of a 2019-W Enhanced Reverse Proof American Silver Eagle and a 2019 Modified Proof Canadian Silver Maple Leaf with NGC’s special labels and ‘Pride of Two Nations’ designation

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC) is celebrating the coins in this set with a special label featuring the flags of the US and Canada, as well as a special pedigree of Pride of Two Nations. There is no additional fee for the label or pedigree.

This is the first time that the US and Canada have collaborated on a coin release. Both coins contain 1 troy ounce of silver in the standard fineness for each respective nation (.999 fine for the Eagle, .9999 fine for the Maple Leaf).

Minted since 1986, the Silver Eagle is the flagship silver bullion coin of the United States. The obverse features the venerable design from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, while the reverse showcases a heraldic eagle from John Mercanti, the renowned former Chief Engraver of the US Mint. This is the first time the Silver Eagle has been made available in the Enhanced Reverse Proof format.

Meanwhile, Canada has minted the Silver Maple Leaf since 1988, with Queen Elizabeth II (the monarch of Canada) on the obverse. The reverse features a rendering of a maple leaf, a national symbol so closely associated with Canada that it appears on its flag.

The US Mint is selling 100,000 sets, and has announced a per-household limit of 5. The Royal Canadian Mint will have an additional 10,000 sets available.

For coins received in their original sealed Mint shipping box, the NGC certification label will indicate the country whose mint sold the set, and these notations will be listed separately in the NGC Census. Coins that are not submitted in their original sealed Mint shipping box will still receive the "Pride of Two Nations" set pedigree, which will also be listed separately in the NGC Census.

NGC has certified more than 42 million coins, medals and tokens. Founded in 1987, the company provides accurate, consistent and impartial assessments of authenticity and grade. For more information about NGC and its grading services, visit NGCcoin.com.

So. Are there more than the 100,000 sets. If US had 100,000. Does the Canada Mint also have additional sets. I’m a bit confused Why we’re waiting till the 3rd and there selling them already?

10k sets sold in canda, 100k sold in US. same product but canada version has slightly different packaging. given that there are different designations for the canada and US version, i could see the canada ones going for a premium

I placed my order by phone at 12:25 EDT yesterday, at that time 88% of the 10,000 Canadian sets were sold, estimated delivery late July.

This was a fun game! I got notice as a RCM Platinum Mint Master Club member and ordered 2 sets at $189.95 (CAD) the other day. The US Mint did not tell its customers about this extra 10,000 sets till today Friday, June 28. I plan on ordering the 5-set limit from the U.S. Mint for me & my four nephews. A beautiful set for sure! But this set will not beat the low mintage/sales of 99,882 sets of the 2011 25th anniversary SAE $1 5-coin set which was issued at $299.95.

Happy collecting everyone!
