Only minting 617,694 proof eagles in 1989, the US Mint unknowingly made this series of eagles more difficult to find over the uncirculated silver eagles. Not only do these proof coins offer an investor one solid ounce of silver but it gives the collector the satisfaction of having a coin with a high numismatic value. Proof coins are already considered higher value than uncirculated, due to their famous and expensive "mirrored" finish. This proof finish takes longer to process than the matte BU finish and usually results in lower mintage coins. Whenever a lower minted coin is certified, this ensures the collector their coin is universally recognized and desired.
Backed by the US government, your Certified Proof Silver Eagle PF69 1989 glimmers with the fresh, shiny proof finish and is protected by an official NGC certified holder. Earning a high grade of PF69, your coin proudly sports its grade on the holder. The obverse showcases Lady Liberty as a Grecian goddess, delicate but unafraid. She is dressed as a soldier from long ago, a loose fitted toga is draped around her tall and slender frame. The coin's date of mintage is also stamped underneath the Lady's feet. The reverse portrays a large eagle, donned with a shield of metal covering its puffed breast. Above the proud eagle's head are 13 stars, which represent the original 13 colonies. The eagle's talons are desperately clenching onto an olive branch and arrows. The olive branch is to signify the peaceful nation but the arrows represent the desire to protect the country at any means possible. "E pluribus unum," the infamous Latin phrase meaning "One from many," is scripted on a banner across the eagle's spread wings.
