The 2008 American Eagle Silver Proof Coin is a collector version of the official United States Mint American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin. The beautiful proof version of this .999 fine silver coin continues to be one of our most popular items and is available early this year for all your gift-giving needs!
America’s strength, freedom, and democracy are all symbolized in the image of a Bald Eagle soaring through our spacious skies. The Bald Eagle’s proud bearing has adorned the Great Seal of the United States since 1782, and now it can be found in this exciting set of products. This magnificent series includes proof and uncirculated versions of gold, silver, and clad Bald Eagle coins, as well as a Three-Coin Proof Set, a Young Collector’s Set, and a Coin and Medal Set. Surcharges from all sales are authorized to be paid to the American Eagle Foundation of Tennessee to further its works.
The 2008 United States Mint 50 State Quarters Proof Set™ includes all five new quarters issued in 2008 through the 50 State Quarters® Program. This tenth and final set honors the last five states to be admitted into the Union. It features Oklahoma’s “Scissortail Flycatcher,” New Mexico’s “Land of Enchantment,” Arizona’s “Grand Canyon State,” Alaska’s “The Great Land,” and Hawaii’s “King Kamehameha I.”
Every year, the H.I.P. Pocket Change™ games that feature the quarters from the 50 State Quarters® Program are updated with images and stories of new designs, and this year is no exception. Cents of Color is the first of the games to offer the new 2008 designs for coloring online.
PuzzleMint will soon follow with its virtual jigsaw versions of these new quarters. Quarter Explorer, of course, will have the new coins, new state trivia questions and new postcards to enjoy.
