Why purchase this American Silver Eagle struck in San Francisco 2012?
The U.S. Mint introduced the American Silver Eagle in 1986. By 2011, the bullion coin had gained such popularity that production was divided between the West Point and San Francisco Mints in order to meet demand. This 2012 dated coin was struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint, confirmed not by Mint mark, but by (S) on the certification label.
Beautiful, Historic Imagery
Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar design is replicated on the obverse, depicting Lady Liberty wrapped an American Flag, confidently striding toward the rising sun. "LIBERTY" is inscribed above, with "2012" beneath her feet and "IN GOD WE TRUST" behind her.
The reverse features the artistry of American sculptor John Mercanti, portraying a heraldic eagle behind a striped shield clutching arrows and an olive branch. Thirteen stars representing the original Colonies are emblazoned in an inverted pyramid-shaped design above, with "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" inscribed.
