The American Eagle’s debut in 1986 sparked a surge in demand as the appetite for silver was unleashed. The 1987 release recorded the highest sales within the series from 1986 to 2007. However, the 1988 release experienced a minor dip in demand compared to the previous year.


On the obverse, you’ll be captivated by Adolph A. Weinman’s timeless portrayal of Lady Liberty as Walking Liberty. This stunning left-profile bust captures Liberty’s graceful stride towards the sun, draped in the American flag, and carrying oak and laurel branches in her hand. Inscriptions read LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 1988.


Turning to the reverse, the 1988 1 oz Silver Eagle displays a contemporary depiction of the heraldic eagle, expertly designed by John Mercanti. This striking image presents a frontal view of a bald eagle with the US national shield, accompanied by elements symbolizing war and peace – arrows and an olive branch, respectively – along with a cluster of 13 stars. The inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1 OZ. FINE SILVER, and ONE DOLLAR.


In the first three years of issue for the American Eagle, demand ebbed and flowed massively. The 1986 debut had nearly 5.4 million in sales, while the 1987 release doubled that figure to reach 11.44 million coins. In 1988, demand fell drastically to 5.004 million coins.


At Provident Metals, all 1988 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins are meticulously housed in protective PCGS plastic slabs. These coins have achieved the prestigious Mint State 70 grade, indicating their flawless condition with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws on the design or fields.
