The first five years in which the Proof Silver American Eagle was issued marked the second-highest mintage collection in the series. The coins averaged roughly 844,000 annually, but that was due in large part to the 1.446 million coins sold in 1986 and the 904,000 coins sold in 1987, two of the three highest mintage years ever in the series. Nevertheless, the 1989 Proof Silver Eagle comes from that impressive five-year run and remains a must-have collectible coin. Right now, 1989-S Proof Silver American Eagle Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com with an NGC certification.

Each of the 1989-S Proof Silver American Eagle Coins in this product listing is available to you for purchase with a PF69 certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered near-perfect specimens with full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and limited in scope to the areas outside the primary focal points.
These Silver American Eagle coins come with a UCAM designation from the NGC. Ultra-cameo, as the term is known, refers to proof coins with strong, frosted design elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The combined effects create a visual contrast between the design and the background field.
On the obverse of 1989-S Proof Silver American Eagle Coins is the image of Walking Liberty. This design features Liberty’s full figure in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon with the American flag over her shoulders, as well as oak and laurel branches in her left hand.
The reverse side of 1989-S Proof Silver Eagles bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. This seal has featured on American circulation coins since 1794 and was modified for this series by John Mercanti in 1986. A notable inclusion in this design is the cluster of 13 stars arranged in a triangle above the eagle that represent the original colonies.
