Why add this 2012 San Francisco struck American Silver Eagle to your collection?
For the second year in a row, increased demand for the American Silver Eagle (ASE) bullion coin required that the U.S. Mint employ both the West Point and San Francisco Mints to produce the coin in 2012. Since bullion ASEs are not Mintmarked, the independent grading services agreed to add the minting location of the coins within parenthesis on the certification label, only when submitted for grading in the original Mint sealed monster boxes. This 2012 bullion ASE coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver featuring the San Francisco (S) on the label and is among a mintage of 33,742,500.
Breathtaking Patriotic Design
The obverse rejuvenates the iconic 1916 "Walking Liberty" Half Dollar created by Adolph A. Weinman, which is one of the most recognized designs of all United States coinage. Lady Liberty is depicted gracefully walking towards the morning sunrise, wrapped in the folds of an American flag, carrying an oak and laurel bouquet.
The reverse features a design by John Mercanti, portraying a heraldic bald eagle with a shield gripping an olive branch and arrows; imagery inspired by the Great Seal of the United States.
Impressive Mint State 69
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 2012-(S) 1 oz. American Silver Eagle a virtually flawless Mint State 69. The coin's exceptional condition is protected in a labeled NGC holder.
This magnificent San Francisco struck American Silver Eagle dated 2012 will make a beautiful addition to your collection!
