The debut of the Proof Silver Eagle in 1986 was met with intense interest from coin collectors. In most cases, it is the first-ever issue of a proof coin that delivers the highest demand. The 1.446 million coins sold in 1986 remains the highest mintage in the history of this long-running series. The 1987 release saw a 40% drop in interest, though the 1987 mintage remains the sixth-highest in the series to date.

In 1986, production of the new Silver American Eagles launched at the San Francisco Mint in both the Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions of the coin. From 1986 to 1998, the BU coins were struck in San Francisco. From 1986 to 1992, the Proof coins were struck in San Francisco featuring an “S” mint mark on the reverse of the coin.

The obverse of these 1987-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles comes with the image of Walking Liberty. Created by Adolph A. Weinman, this effigy of Liberty was designed in 1916 and originally featured on the circulating US half dollar.

On the reverse of 1987-S Proof Silver Eagles is the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design comes from John Mercanti and depicts the American bald eagle with the US national shield. The eagle clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace, with a triangular cluster of 13 stars over its head.

These 1987-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle Coins are near-perfect coins with a PR69 grade from the PCGS. Coins in this condition showcase full, original mint luster have no more than two minor detracting flaws. To qualify for this grade, flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be outside the primary focal points. The DCAM designation assigned to these coins points out the presence of a strong frost on the design and a deeply-mirrored background field.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
