'Rare Bird' Lands in Your Collection

It's not easy to make coins. First, you have to make dies. For coins like the 2008 Silver Eagle struck at the West Point Mint, they had to make a lot of dies. In their hurry, the mint used the reverse for the 2007 Silver Eagle on some of the 2008 dies. No one noticed the difference until collectors saw the coins and realized the 'U' in United States didn't have the downward bar of the 2008 coins, but rather the plain U of 2007. Oops! The error coins immediately became a hot collector item, and with only about 9% of the total mintage being the error they are now very hard to find, even more so when graded near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This Silver Eagle error is 'a rare bird' indeed. Don’t miss your chance to own something really special. Call now!

Year of Issue 2008
Country United States
Composition Silver
Purity 0.9990
Condition
Graded
Coins that are inspected, evaluated and graded by an independent, third party grading service. After a grade is assigned, each coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic "slab," preserving the coin's condition.
Uncirculated
A state of preservation used to describe coins that never circulated in the channels of commerce, i.e. a coin without any wear from circulation.
Grade
MS69
The second-highest grade a coin can obtain, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Mint State-69, otherwise known as MS69, means your almost-flawless coin showcases an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. With quality well above of the majority of coins in their respective series, many collectors prefer MS69-graded coins for their balance of collector status and affordability.

Built in 1937 and located near the U.S. Military Academy in New York, the West Point Mint began as a silver bullion depository.

The facility was finally established as an official United States Branch Mint in 1988, and today the West Point Mint is home to the production of Gold, Silver and Platinum Eagles in both Proof and Uncirculated conditions.
