Why add this 1987-S Silver Eagle NGC PF70 UC Proof 70 Ultra Cameo to your collection?
This 1987-S Proof Silver Eagle has a lower mintage than the previous year’s version of the coin, thus adding an element of scarcity to the beautiful design. As if that weren’t attractive enough in its own right, this coin is one of just a few thousand to have received perfect grades from any grading company, in this case PF70 Ultra Cameo from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). In fact, fewer than three percent of those graded have earned that coveted designation. The designs of this coin are the same ones that continue to be used for the Silver Eagle today. On the obverse, that is Adolph Weinman’s famed Walking Liberty on which a confident Liberty is shown walking toward the left side of the coin while draped in the American flag. On the reverse, an eagle guards a shield in John Mercanti’s adaptation of the design on the Great Seal of the United States. This coin consists of .999 pure silver and has an actual silver weight of 1 Troy oz. Why not pick one up today and celebrate the sophomore year of this popular coin?
