It is common for proof collectible silver coins to have their highest mintage figures in the first years of availability. As a collectible coin continues to go into production year after year, mintage figures can vary and create long-term value in years with low mintage figures. However, there is only one coin that holds the honor of being the first in such a series. The Proof Silver Eagle was no different, seeing two of its three highest mintage figures ever in the first two years of availability.
All 1987-S Proof American Silver Eagle coins in this product listing are available to you in near-perfect condition. The NGC certifies a coin as PF69 when it features full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this certification level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin.
The included UCAM label means these coins are ultra-cameo specimens. Such coins have strong, frosted design elements combined with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse side of the 1987-S Proof American Silver Eagle coin is the Walking Liberty design. It features a left-profile image of Liberty as she walks from left to right across the design. She pursues the sun on the horizon in the distance and wears the American flag over her shoulders.
The reverse face of 1987 Proof Silver Eagles features the heraldic eagle of the United States. This iconic seal of the nation depicts an American bald eagle behind the national shield with arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. There is also a triangular cluster of 13 stars above its head in this modification.
