Why Add This 1987-S Proof Silver Eagle to Your Collection?
The American Silver Eagle was introduced in 1986. This coin has been very popular ever since, and today its popularity has only continued to grow. The Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the U.S. Mint, but the proof version is very collectable. It is made of .999 fine silver and weighs 1 Troy oz. The final mintage for the 1987-S proof Silver Eagle was 904,732. These early proof Silver Eagles from the San Francisco Mint can be difficult to find.
This 1987-S proof Silver Eagle was submitted to NGC for grading. The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation uses a numerical 70 point grading scale, this is the industry standard. This coin received the grade of PF69 along with the Ultra Cameo designation. The grade of PF69 is quite high and isn’t seen as often with older Silver Eagles. The Ultra Cameo designation was given because this coin displays great visual contrast. This contrast is present because of its excellent proof finish. Now a permanently sealed NGC holder protects this Silver Eagle.
Older Silver Eagles can be hard to come by, order this NGC PF69 UC 1987-S proof Silver Eagle for your collection.
