The 2008 release of the Silver American Eagle was monumental for a number of reasons. In particular, one event occurred that would impact all three versions of the Silver American Eagle available for sale from the United States Mint. Today, the 2008-W Proof Silver American Eagle coin is now available for purchase on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • A total of 22,502 coins earned this certification and designation!
  • 23rd striking of the Proof Silver American Eagle coin!
  • Ships in a plastic slab to protect the coin’s perfect condition.
  • Consists of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Face value of $1 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • Earned a grade of PF70 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Ultra-cameo designation for its brilliant finish.
  • Bears the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint.
  • Features Walking Liberty from Adolph A. Weinman on the obverse.
  • Heraldic Eagle of the United States from John Mercanti on the reverse.

At the end of 2007, the global economy entered the Great Recession. The impact on the Silver American Eagle coin program was far reaching in both the short and long term. After a bullion mintage of 9.02 million in 2007, the production of the investment-grade Silver Eagle more than doubled to a new high of 20.583 million coins.

The impact on the 2008-W Proof Silver American Eagle was far reaching. For 2008 immediately, the massive increase in bullion production meant the US Mint had to divert incoming silver blanks to bullion coin production. While the US Mint is required by federal law to meet demand for bullion coins, the same does not apply to the Proof Silver Eagle.

As such, the mint sold out in August at 700,979 2008 Proof Silver American Eagle coins. In the long term, the impact on the Proof Silver American Eagle would last until 2010. The United States Mint would again see unprecedented demand for the bullion coin in 2009, resulting in a halt to Proof Silver Eagle production for the entirety of 2009.

Each 2008-W Proof Silver American Eagle coin in this Silver.com listing is a perfect product with a PF70 grade from the NGC. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster and feature no detracting flaws on the surfaces. UCAM is a designation for proof coins with a strong, frosted design and deeply-mirrored, clear 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.
