Product Description
This was the last year Burnished Silver Eagles were minted before there was a hiatus in 2009-2010! Burnished Silver Eagles are already produced at a significantly lower amount than other Silver Eagles, so a break in the production makes them even more rare! It is also important to note, that the 2008 Burnished Silver Eagle is the first year that the Silver Eagles featured slight enhancements to the design. Although, subtle this makes for a much sharper looking coin!
 
Burnished Silver Eagles are stunning and unique and are more likely to be overlooked by collectors. This type of Silver Eagle was first minted in 2006 at the West Point Mint. Burnished coins are struck using burnished silver blanks which have an attractive satin like finish. Each year a limited number of Burnished Silver eagle Coins are produced, making these coins highly sought after and very collectable. 
 
The 2008 coin is particularly collectible as in 2009 and 2010; no burnished silver eagles were minted. The 2008-W burnished silver eagle was minted at the West point facility, and this coin has a ‘W’ mintmark on the reverse side.
