1989-S Proof Silver Eagle

For a while, proof Silver Eagles were struck at the San Francisco Mint. The 1989 proof issue falls into this category. Just under 618,000 of these coins were struck. While this mintage figure is far from high, it is the age and origin of this coin that create its value. Perfect examples of older proof Silver Eagles can be hard to find.

NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo 1989 Proof Silver Eagle

This 1989 S proof Silver Eagle was submitted to NGC for grading. The NGC is one of the world’s top coin grading services, like PCGS. Some may prefer one or the other but both are excellent grading companies. This Silver Eagle received the prestigious grade of Proof 70, or PF70.

It is likely you noticed the incredible difference in appearance between the background and Liberty. This is one of the first things that jump out when looking at a high grade proof Silver Eagle. That is why this coin also received the Ultra Cameo designation.

1989 San Francisco Proof Silver Eagle Design

The reverse of the Silver Eagle was designed by John Mercanti. This side features a heraldic eagle. The bald eagle has a shield covering its body and it holds a bundle of arrows and an olive branch with its talons. The inscriptions on this side read “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”

The front of the 1989 proof Silver Eagle shows a modern version of Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty. Liberty is carrying a bundle of oak and laurel branches as she makes her way across the sunny scene. On this surface the inscriptions read “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “1989.”

Add a beautiful modern proof to your collection today with this NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo 1989 S Silver Eagle.

1989-S Silver Eagle Ultra Cam
I was looking for a 1989 Silver Eagle as an anniversary gift for my husband. I know very little about numismatics, so I was mostly interested in year and condition. My search led me to this coin at MCM. I was not familiar with MCM or Ultra Cameos. After a little research I decided that this was a good purchase. MCM had great customer reviews, a beautiful and accurate photograph of the coin, a fair price, and fast service. My husband was wowed by the coin. Best gift I ever bought him. Thank you MCM!
