1987 Silver Eagle MS70-PR70 DCAM -ANACS Certified

Demand for the second year of issue Silver Eagle was so high that 11,442,335 coins were minted a more than doubling from the prior year. It would take a full twenty years for that 11 million coin plateau to be reached again.
 

Despite the then record high mintage for the uncirculated coin, 1987 yielded one of the lowest certified populations of coins capable of being certified perfect in the entire series. Authorized by President Ronald Reagan, the purpose of the American Silver Eagle program was to provide individuals the opportunity to own physical silver that was guaranteed for weight and purity by the United States government. However, their beautiful design and large size made them an instant hit with coin collectors worldwide. This is your opportunity to acquire some of the earliest coins that began the craze, certified in the highest numismatic grade possible, MS70 and PR70 DCAM.  These coins look incredible even under 5X magnification. In 1987 the certification of coins in “slabs” was in its infancy, for that reason only a tiny number of Silver Eagles produced between 1986- 1999 have ever been certified in perfect MS70 and PR70 condition. Consequently the certified “world population” for these coins is miniscule!

Please note the PR70 DCAM coin has a S for San Francisco Mintmark. Only Proof coins struck between 1986-1992 have an S mintmark. Almost two decades passed before the U.S. Mint struck another Silver Eagle bearing the S Mintmark in 2011!
