Most countries have their own silver dollar that is marked with that country's insignia, historical etchings, and whatever else that is important to that nation. For the US, the Proof Silver Eagle displays much of the history of the US and is the perfect way to mark a special occasion for loved ones. The US Coat of Arms, the Walking Liberty, and the 13 stars to symbolize the original 13 colonies are just a few reasons why the Proof Silver Eagle isn't just about the silver but the history that comes along with it. Plus, with its excellent packaging, competitively low mintages, and beautiful proof finish, showing off history has never been more ideal.
Your 2008 Proof Silver Eagle is guaranteed by the US Mint to weigh one troy ounce of .999 silver. It is packaged in original mint packaging, including its COA and flaunts the "W" mintmark. A flawless yet recognizable shine is on your coin because of its beautiful proof finish. The US National seal is on the reverse of every silver eagle to date. The seal consists of a large eagle with wings outspread and the infamous saying, "E pluribus unum," written on a banner. Each of the eagle's talons are holding something; the right is clenching a single olive branch to represent a peaceful nation, while the other is holding exactly 13 arrows as a respect to the original 13 colonies. The coin's weight and purity is also stamped on the reverse. The obverse previews the Lady Liberty, gracefully draped in a flowing gown and an American flag hung over her shoulders. The obverse also bears the words, "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the date of mintage of the coin. Whether you are looking to buy silver online as a gift or to enjoy for yourself, the American Silver Eagle collection is the perfect series for any need!
