Why buy this 2-Coin 1986 & 2020 Silver American Eagle Set?
This set is perfect for fans of the American Silver Eagle Series. This set consists of two coins, one 1986 Silver Eagle, marking the the first year of issue, and one 2020 piece. Both feature former United States Mint Chief Engraver, John Mercanti's, iconic original reverse design. This is particularly important since at some point in mid-2021 a new reverse design will debut on the beloved American Silver Eagle bullion series. Both of these coins were struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Classic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Both coins in this set share the same designs. The obverse features Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design, which originally appeared on the half dollar from 1916-1947. Liberty strides confidently to the left side of this face. Draped in the American flag, she carries branches in her left arm. Laurel branches represent honors bestowed upon civilians, while oak branches represent honors bestowed upon members of the military. She extends her right hand in front of her above the rising sun. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date.
On the reverse is John Mercanti's eagle design. An eagle guards a union shield under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. The bird clutches arrows, which represent America's willingness to defend her values, and an olive branch, which expresses a desire for peace. The design is encircled by three rim inscriptions. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" spreads throughout the top half of the rim. Inscriptions on the bottom half note the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
Beautiful GEM Unc Double Coin Holder with Mercanti Signed Label
These coins come set in a single holder. Both were graded GEM Uncirculated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The label on which this grade was provided was hand signed by John Mercanti, the reverse designer himself!
