The 1987 Silver Eagle Coin – NGC graded Mint State 69

Considered one of the most popular silver coins in the world, the Silver Eagle is the only 1 oz. silver bullion coin produced in the United States. Discussions about the series, originally conceived to help the U.S. compete with international bullion coin producers, began in the 1970s. But it wasn’t 1986 that the first American Silver Eagle was struck at the Philidelphia Mint, officially launching the program.

Primarily targeted to precious metal collectors, the initial mintage of American Silver Eagles immediately sold out, and in 1987, production increased significantly. Despite the additional volume, continuing international demand helped propel the American Silver Eagle coin program to instant success and helps keep these coins highly desirable for both coin enthusiasts and silver stackers today, more than twenty years later.

Your mint state Silver Eagle coin weighs 31.103 g (1 oz.). It has a diameter of 40.6 mm and a thickness of 2.98 mm, and has a reeded edge.

The design of the 1987 Silver Eagle – MS69

The obverse design of the 1987 Silver eagle coin is based on the famed “Walking Liberty” design, created by Adolph A. Weinman for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, in circulation from 1916 to 1947. Considered one of the most beloved designs of any U.S. coin, it features Lady Liberty striding boldly across an open plain. One of her arms extends toward the sun as she carries olive branches in her other arm. Surrounding this iconic image, the obverse is inscribed with “1987,” the word “LIBERTY,” and the phrase “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

The reverse of the Silver Eagle was designed by John Mercanti, and portrays an eagle rising behind a shield. In its talons, the eagle grasps an olive branch and three arrows, an image that echoes the Great Seal of the United States. Above the eagle rise thirteen stars, and the reverse’s inscription includes “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER—ONE DOLLAR,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

Why add the MS69 graded 1987 Silver Eagle coin to your collection?

History, practicality and value combine to make the Silver Eagle program a lasting favorite of collectors. The 1987 Silver Eagle carries a face value of US $1, which is its legal value. Its intrinsic value, however is dictated by its silver content, which is 1 oz. of .999 fine silver. The silver content is backed by the U.S. government.

In addition, this coin has been graded MS69 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), an internationally-recognized grading authority for coins. An MS69 grade means your coin has a sharp strike with full original luster, and contains no more than two small, non-detracting contact marks or flaws. There are no visible hairlines or scuff marks, and its eye appeal is exceptional. The early mintage date for this coin and its extreme quality make it perfect for the beginning silver collector or the experienced silver stacker. Complete your collection today with the 1987 Silver Eagle Mint State 69 coin! These coins may have old style NGC holders.
