2008 Silver Eagle Value is $20 – $21 raw and if graded MS69 is worth $30. Coins must be graded and certified by PCGS or NGC to be worth near retail premiums with MS70 being rare.
A rule of thumb for raw Silver Eagles value is to take their current melt value and add $5 to $7. The exception is coins from the 1990’s and 1980’s since they have a premium over coins from 2000 and later.
