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.
