For the first time in the American Silver Eagle series, a significant variety was released in 2008. This was known as the 2008-W Silver Eagle Reverse of 2007 Variety

In the middle of April 2008, John Nanney from Leesburg, Georgia discovered the first known 2008-W Silver Eagle that had a Reverse design from the year 2007.

The pick up point for distinguishing a 2008-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle with a Reverse of 2007, is on the letter U of United on the Reverse of the coin. The letter U on 2007 coins will lack the serif located on the right lower hand side of the U. In 2008 and going forward, all Uncirculated and Proof Silver Eagles should contain a serif on the bottom right of the letter U of United.
