Mintages for 2008 Proof Platinum Eagles dropped significantly this year. All four different denominations produced for the Proof Platinum Eagle series ranged from about 4,000 to 5,000 in 2008. The previous year or in 2007, mintages ranged anywhere from about 6,000 - 25,000 coins.
Therefore, the 2008-W $50 Proof Platinum Eagle is one of the scarcer issues for the Proof Platinum Eagle series. The 2008-W $50 Proof Platinum Eagle had the lowest mintage for any $50 Proof Platinum Eagle produced from 1997 to 2008.
