Why purchase this 10-Pack Philadelphia Mint 2020-(P) 1 oz Silver $1 American Eagles?
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic upended life throughout the world. Now, collectors have the chance to own pieces that commemorate that time. The West Point Mint, which normally produces bullion Silver Eagles, shut down on account of the virus from April 8-20, 2020. When it did, production transferred to the Philadelphia Mint. During that time, the Philadelphia Mint produced 240,000 of these coins. Although they lack mint marks, the coins were identifiable as coming from the Philadelphia Mint via labeling and handwritten markings on the sealed monster boxes in which they were released. Each coin in this set is part of that unique history and was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Stunning Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
On the obverse is a design from America's rich numismatic history, Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty. The design featured on America's half dollars from 1916-1947. Draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap that identifies her as a freed slave, Liberty steps to the left side of this face. She carries with her laurel branches, which represent civilian honors, and oak branches, which represent military ones. She extends her right hand in front of her, as though greeting the new day as the morning sun rises below. "LIBERTY" is inscribed at the top of this face, while other obverse inscriptions read, "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2020."
2020 is the last year in which John Mercanti's famous adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States will appear on the reverse, where it has been since 1986. At the center is a union shield, which is guarded by an eagle. The bird spreads its wings while clutching arrows, symbols of America's preparedness to defend her values, and an olive branch, which indicates a desire for peace, in its talons. It also holds a ribbon that unfurls to reveal the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Above is an arrangement of thirteen stars, which represent the original states. Along the rim are three sets of inscriptions that encircle the image. They read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR."
