Why buy this 10-Pack of 2020-(P) $1 American 1 oz Silver Eagles Struck at Philadelphia?
Since its inaugural issue in 1986, the America Silver Eagle has come to dominate the world of modern bullion. In addition to its US government backing for weight and purity, the series's obverse design, an iconic piece of numismatic history, makes this series a favorite among collectors around the world. In April 2020, production of the coin at the West Point Mint was paused as the mint closed its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From April 8-20, production shifted to Philadelphia. 240,000 pieces were produced in the City of Brotherly Love during that stretch, and they are sure to be prized by collectors for decades. All ten coins in this set are part of the historic run. Each one was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver.
Featuring the Treasured Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
The Silver Eagle's obverse design first appeared on half dollars from 1916-1947 and returned for the debut of this series in 1986. The work of Adolph Weinman, Walking Liberty features a graceful Liberty striding left. Draped in the American flag, she is the picture of patriotism. On her head is a Phrygian cap, which identifies her as a freed slave. She carries laurel branches, symbols of honors bestowed upon civilians, and oak branches, which represent honors bestowed upon members of the military, in her left arm. She extends her right hand in front of her above the rising sun, the rays of which spread out below. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the date, "2020," and America's national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
These coins are collectible not just because of the unique COVID-19-related circumstances but also because 2020 is the last time that John Mercanti's reverse design will feature on the coin. Modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States, the image consists of thirteen stars, symbols of the original states, and an eagle guarding a union shield. The eagle spreads its wings and holds a ribbon in its beak. The ribbon bears the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM." In its talons are arrows, which serve as reminders to all that America is willing to defend her values, and an olive branch, which indicates that the country would prefer peace. Rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
