Why order this 10-Pack Type I 2021-(S) Emergency Production 1 oz American Silver Eagles Struck at San Francisco Mint?
This set of 10 American Silver Eagles comes from a historic issue in the series. These coins are not only part of the 35th anniversary issue of the series and are some the final bullion issues to bear John Mercanti's original heraldic eagle reverse design, but they are also part of a production run of Silver Eagles that were struck at the San Francisco Mint. Typically, bullion Silver Eagles have been struck at the West Point Mint, however the United States Mint turned the their San Francisco branch to help keep up with collector demand and to offset production delays during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Featuring for the Final Time John Mercanti's Patriotic Reverse Design
Obverse: The obverse of these coins bears Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty design. The morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon as Liberty extends her right hand to greet the new day while bearing branches of laurel and oak in her left arm. The image is joined by three inscriptions, which read, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021." Adolph Weinman is best known among collectors for designing the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. His other artistic work includes not just other numismatic designs but also sculptures, some of which are still on display in numerous American cities.
Reverse: On the reverse is an adapted version of the Great Seal of the United States. Designed by John Mercanti, it consists of thirteen stars, which represent the original states, and an eagle that protects a union shield. Encircling the design are rim inscriptions that offer the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's metal content, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti was the twelfth Chief Engraver of the US Mint, a position that he occupied for just a portion of his nearly four decades with the institution. He is the most prolific designer of coins and medals in American history.
