Being the most popular bullion collection in the US, the American Silver Eagle collection is a valuable part of every collector and investor's repertoire. 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.
Your 1989 Proof Silver Eagle is guaranteed, by the US Mint, to weigh one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. Your coin glimmers with the fresh, shiny proof finish and is protected by an airtight capsule. Your coin comes in original mint packaging, with the initial mint box and Certificate of Authenticity. The "S" mintmark is branded on the proof coin to prove it was minted at the US Mint in San Francisco. 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. 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. With such excellent packaging, history, and quality bullion, the Proof American Silver Eagle needs to be next on your collecting agenda!
