2008-W Burnished Silver Eagle - Reverse of 2007 - Gem BU (w/ Box & C.O.A.)! - 47,000 Mintage? A Near Perfect Example!
Each of these scarce coins has the 2007 style reverse with a plain "U" in United, smaller stars and lettering farther from the rim than the new style 2008 reverse. Early estimates put the mintage of this variety at around 47,000, making it one of the rarest silver eagles! Each of these 2008-W uncirculated silver eagles was struck with a special matte (sometimes referred to as burnished) finish and comes housed in its original box with C.O.A.
