2008-W Burnished 1 oz. Silver Eagle NGC MS69 Mint State 69

This 2008-W 1 oz. Silver Eagle was struck on a burnished blank, something that the United States Mint had only started doing two years earlier. As burnished Silver Eagles are struck at West Point, this coin bares a “W,” the West Point Mint Mark, on the reverse. Having received a grade of MS69 from the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation (NGC), this coin not only features two beautiful designs, but also has the burnished look that will make it extra special for collectors.

Design of the 2008-W Burnished Silver Eagle

This 2008-W Burnished Silver Eagle bears one of the most beloved designs in American coinage, the Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty. Lady Liberty is depicted carrying branches of laurel and oak in her left hand. Those branches represent civilian and military glory. Walking toward the left of the coin, she has her left hand extended in front of her. Behind her hand is part of the American flag, in which she is draped. The sun is setting behind a mountain in the lower left. Under Lady Liberty’s foot is the year of mintage, “2008,” and her name, “LIBERTY,” spans the top portion of the rim, partially obscured by the image. Just under the “Y” on the right are the words of the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

John Mercanti’s adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States is depicted on the reverse. At the center of the image is a shield that has thirteen stripes. An eagle guards it from behind, spreading its wings and talons to the sides. The wings extend upward, nearly touching the inscription “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” which runs along the top half of the rim. In the space between the wings and over the eagle’s head, there are 13 stars, which, like the stripes on the shield, hark back to the first 13 states. In the talon on the left, the eagle grasps an olive branch, while it holds several arrows in the one on the right. Together, these images represent a preference for peace but a willingness to fight for the values that America holds dear. In the lower left is the mint mark, a “W.” The bottom portion of the rim has an inscription that offers the metal content and face value of the
