Description & Analysis

The 2008 Silver Eagle is the 23rd issue in the bullion series. Unfortunately the quality of these coins were not nearly as good as the 2007 issue, as NGC has only graded around 9% of them MS70, as compared to almost 25% for the previous year's issue.

2008 had the largest mintage of bullion Silver Eagles since 1987 with over 20 million produced. This was also the first year that the new reverse design was used. The difference is most noticeable with the addition of a tail on the "U" in "UNITED." It is possible that collectors looking for errors relating to the reverse hub change helped to drive up these numbers.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
