As time passes, the most popular proof coins in any series are those from the initial release years, those from commemorative date marks, and others with unique issues or mint marks. Among the most popular coins in the Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin series is the 1987 release from the second year of availability. Provident Metals now offers the 1987-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin for purchase in near-perfect condition online.
When you purchase one of these 1987-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins, you receive a specimen with a near-perfect certification. The PF69 certification means the coins showcase full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and limited in scope to the areas outside the primary focal points of the coin.
Included with these coins is an ultra-cameo, or UCAM, label. This means the coins have contrasting strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse face of 1987-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of Walking Liberty. This iconic design is inspired by the spirit of a neutral America when Europe was in the midst of World War I. Liberty walks toward the sun on the horizon, indicative of a hope for a brighter, more peaceful future. She carries branches of oak and laurel in her left hand and the American flag draped over her shoulders.
The reverse of the 1987-S Proof American Eagle Silver Coin bears the heraldic eagle of the United States. This seal has been reproduced time and again, with this version modified by John Mercanti in 1986.
1987-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins were produced with a mintage of 904,732 coins. This figure wouldnt have been surpassed until 2006 when just over 1 million coins were struck. The 1987 Proof American Eagle Silver Coins mintage remains the sixth highest in the series to this day.
The 1987-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin in this listing is available with a sealed protective plastic slab. Each one has an S mint mark from the San Francisco Mint, the original mint location of Proof American Eagle Silver Coins from 1986 to 1992.
