|Mint Mark:||W - West Point|
|Metal Content:||1 troy oz|
Mintage of only 47,000 coins! This variety is the only recognized error in the 29 year history of the silver eagle program.
This error is easily determined by the bowl shaped U on UNITED on the 2007 reverse as opposed to the new "U" font on the 2008 reverse. There are numerous changes on the reverse of the 2008-W American Silver Eagle including flatter, larger, and closer stars above the eagle. This is also a special Burnished coin that comes complete with box and certificate of authenticity.
