The 1989 Proof American Eagle Silver Coin is one of the harder coins from the 1980s to find in this collection, particularly as a certified specimen. The 1989 coin had a mintage 60% lower than the debut issue in 1986 and was released at a point in history when silver prices were around $5.50 per ounce. What some may consider a vintage release in the Proof American Eagle Series, 1989 coins represent one of just four issues from the first decade of the series. Today, you have the chance to buy 1989-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.
After the 1986 debut of the Proof American Eagle Silver Coins, the United States Mint noticed an immediate and significant drop in the next two years. The 1987 release dropped by 40% compared to the debut issue and the 1988 release was down nearly 60% from the debut issue, marking the low point for coining in the 1980s. In 1989, demand rebounded as the first of two years of growing demand before the Proof American Eagle Silver Coins settled at very low mintage levels throughout the rest of the 1990s. The mintage seen in 1989 would not be surpassed, aside from the 1990 release, until 2001.
On the obverse of 1989-S Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins is Walking Liberty. Created by Adolph A. Weinman, this effigy of Liberty depicts her figure walking from right to left across the design field as she strides toward the sun on the horizon. The inscriptions read Liberty, In God We Trust, and 1989.
The reverse side of the 1989-S Proof American Eagle Silver Coin features the modern image of the heraldic eagle. This design comes from John Mercanti and shows a front-facing bald eagle. The eagle supports the US national shield while clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace. There is a triangular cluster of 13 stars above the eagle and a banner in its beak that reads E Pluribus Unum. Other inscriptions include United States of America and 1 oz. Fine Silver One Dollar.
The 1989 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin was one of just seven issues of the collectible coin at the San Francisco Mint. You will find an S mint mark on the reverse of the coins.
