1988-S $1 American Proof Silver Eagle Coin – NGC Certified - PF70 UC

This collector issue 1988-S American Silver Eagle is a NGC certified PF70 Ultra Cameo (UC) proof coin. It is a prime example of America’s favorite 1 oz. silver bullion coin, the $1 Silver Eagle.

This silver dollar was struck at the US Mint facility in San Francisco 2 years after the American Silver Eagle Bullion Program started in 1986. The demand for American Silver Eagle Proofs (ASE Proofs) declined substantially in 1988. The Mint sold 347,365 less ASE Proofs than the previous year. This was despite keeping the price at a level of $23 per coin – the same price that was charged in 1987.

This 1988 Proof American Silver Eagle is an absolute stunner. It bears matte and hand-polished mirror-like finishes. The “Ultra Cameo” designation points to a perfect contrast between its raised and flat surfaces. This is a proof coin of original mint luster and show no visible post-production blemishes under a 5x magnifier.

Design of the 1988-S 1 oz. Proof Silver Eagle

The obverse features the Walking Liberty design of American sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman.

The reverse features the Heraldic Eagle design of American sculptor, John Mercanti.
