The 2008

American Silver Eagle Dollar Proof Coin

(2008 one ounce Silver dollar proof coin - Original US Mint item # Z86)


The proof version of the 2008 American Silver Eagle one ounce coins uses the same Adolph A. Weinman's beautiful Walking Liberty design as the bullion silver eagles made this year.  However, these collector version  coins are special "proof", struck multiple times with polished dies.

Obverse Proof Coin Design

Obverse of 2008 proof American Silver Eagle dollar coin

 The US Mint says this about the popular walking liberty on the front:
"The obverse design features an ever hopeful Lady Liberty striding confidently toward the sunrise, draped in the strength of the Stars and Stripes carrying in her arms branches of laurel and oak to symbolize both civil and military glory."

Reverse Proof Coin Design

The United States Mint sculptor John Mercanti is credited with designing the eagle reverse.  It features a stylized "heraldic eagle" with a shield, and holding an olive branch (for peace) one foot and arrows (for defense) in the other foot.

Editors note:  The Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is not really "hand signed" by the mint director.  His signature is just a printed on the COA, as with all Certificates of Authenticity that the mint issues with other coins.
