These special 2020-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins have a privy mark struck on the obverse in the shape of the Rainbow Pool on the National Mall in Washington D.C. The privy mark includes V75 inside as a nod to American victory 75 years ago in World War II. The shape of the privy mark was purposely chosen because the Rainbow Pool was integrated into the National World War II Memorial when it was built on the spot in 2001.

On the obverse side of the 2020-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle in this listing is the image of Walking Liberty. Her figure is shown here in left-profile relief as she strides toward the sun on the horizon. Her right hand reaches out to the bright light of a new day as the American flag flutters around her shoulders and her left hand carries branches of oak and laurel.
The reverse face of 2020-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins includes the historic national emblem of the United States. The heraldic eagle was first designed in 1792, with this design coming from John Mercanti. Created in 1986 for the release of the American Silver Eagle, it boasts a powerful version of the eagle with a large US national shield. The bird clutches the arrows of war and olive branch of peace, while a triangular cluster of 13 stars is featured overhead.
