Why buy this San Francisco 2013-(S) American Silver Eagle?
The American Silver Eagle Series has been a top choice among collectors since its debut in 1986. For much of its history, the bullion coins were only struck at a single mint each year. A response to a request submitted under the Freedom of Information Act, though, revealed that the US Mint has been striking the coin at multiple mints in recent years. Based on the serial numbers and hand markings on sealed monster boxes, this coin could be traced back to the San Francisco Mint. Like other Silver Eagles, it was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine silver.
Featuring the Iconic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
The obverse bears Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty design, which appeared on half dollars from 1916-1947. Draped in the American flag, Liberty strides confidently toward the left side of this face. She carries laurel branches, symbols of honors bestowed upon civilians, and oak branches, symbols of those bestowed upon members of the military, in her left arm. She extends her right hand forward above the morning sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," joins the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2013," as the inscriptions on this face.
On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. The work of John Mercanti, it features thirteen stars, which represent the original states, above an eagle. The eagle protects a union shield while holding a ribbon that bears the phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM" in its beak. In its talons, the bird holds arrows, symbols of America's willingness to protect her values, and an olive branch, which expresses a desire for peace. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR."
Flawless MS70 with Exclusive Mercanti Signed Label
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Mint State 70 condition. That grade means that a coin appears perfect even under 5x magnification. The grading company provided that information on a label that was hand signed by former United States Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti.
