This is a 2008 American Silver Eagle PROOF with blue outer box, blue velvet container which the coin is in and the COA.++++Please note that the United States Mint states on their web site (us ) that "PRODUCTION OF UNITED STATES MINT AMERICAN EALGLE SILVER PROOF AND UNCIRCULATED COINS HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED BECAUSE OF UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND FOR AMERICAN SILVER EAGLE BULLION COINS". The statement goes on to read when a sufficient quantity of silver blanks are acquired the US Mint will again begin minting both the proof and uncirculated coins. YOU CAN GO ON LINE AND READ THIS. NO ONE CAN BUY ANY YEAR OF THE AMERICAN EAGLE SILVER PROOF COIN FROM THE US MINT. THEY ARE SOLD OUT. NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO ACQUIRE A 2008 PROOF AS A RESONABLE PRICE. Thanks for stopping by.
