In the American Eagle Silver Series, the US Mint offers three versions of the coin, as of 2006. In 1986, the BU and Proof versions of the coin debuted, while the 2006 issue debuted the new Burnished version. The Proof American Eagle remains the more popular of the two collectible versions. Provident Metals now has near-perfect 2008-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online.
