1989-S Proof Silver Eagle

The 1989 proof Silver Eagle is only the 4th in the series. While a high number of proofs were struck for the initial release, mintage figures dropped sharply after that. Only 617,694 of these coins were struck. This coin’s age and conservative mintage figures are the main reasons for its value, but old “S” proof Silver Eagles have their own following as well.

PCGS PR69 Deep Cameo 1989 San Francisco Proof Silver Eagle

This 1989 S proof was graded by PCGS. The fact that PCGS examined this coin also removes all doubts regarding authenticity. The grade of Proof 69 was given to this Silver Eagle. Since PCGS uses a 70 point grading scale, this is the 2nd highest grade available. This grade offers a nice combination of value, eye appeal, and affordability.

The Deep Cameo designation was given to this proof Silver Eagle as well. The quality that earned the coin this designation is one of the first things people notice, the high degree of visual contrast. Depending on the angle, this Silver Eagle may actually appear to be black and white because of this.

1989 Proof Silver Eagle Design

The front of the Silver Eagle is a slightly updated version of Weinman’s classic Walking Liberty design. Here Liberty is carrying a bundle of branches with one arm while she walks across the scene with her other arm outstretched. The sun is shining brightly in the distance. This side of the coin reads “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “1989.”

The back of the 1989 S proof Silver Eagle shows John Mercanti’s heraldic bald eagle. A shield covers the eagle’s body and 13 stars are above its head. In its beak is a banner which reads “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The rest of this side reads “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
