2008-W Silver Eagle PCGS PR69 DCAM Proof 69 Deep Cameo
This 2008-W Silver Eagle PR69 brings out the finer details of America’s popular bullion coin. The proof finish and deep cameo create exceptional contrast, enabling just about anyone to see and appreciate every aspect of this coin with the naked eye. The coin also contains 1 oz. of .999 silver, an intrinsic value addition to the coin’s already considerable numismatic value.
Design of this 2008-W Silver Eagle PR69
Lady Liberty dominates the obverse of this 2008-W Silver Eagle PR69, which is an adaptation of Adolph Weinman’s 1916 design. She strides toward the left side of the coin with her right arm outstretched and her left hand holding symbols of civilian and military honors, laurel and oak branches respectively. Her left foot is just leaving the ground to the right of the coin, and the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” is inscribed over it. The sun is in front of her on the horizon, partially obscured by a mountain. The word “LIBERTY” runs along the rim clockwise from left to right, and the mintage year is inscribed under Liberty’s right foot.
Two inscriptions encircle the image on the reverse, which John Mercanti adapted from the Great Seal of the United States. The inscription at the top reads, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” while the one on the bottom is “1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR,” the metal content and nominal face value. The design itself has thirteen stars arranged in a triangle at the top. They point down at the head of an eagle, which is turned toward the left of the coin. The eagle’s wings rise on either side of its body, which is obscured by a shield. In its talons, the eagle holds symbols of peace and America’s willingness to fight for its values, an olive branch and arrows, respectively.
