Through an exclusive arrangement with NGC, it also features a hand signature from retired US Mint engraver John Mercanti, designer of the reverse of the coin.
First introduced in 1986, this annual program is widely anticipated by bullion stackers and numismatists. This year’s release is the 30th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle program. Each coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine silver and is backed by the US Government.
Adolph Weinman’s design of Walking Liberty Half Dollar inspired the face of the ASE and is one of the most collected designs in American coinage. It features the goddess Liberty, oak and laurel branches in hand, basking in the dawn of a new day.
The reverse was designed by sculptor John Mercanti the now retired 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint. No stranger to Numismatics, Mr. Mercanti has remained active in the field since his retirement. The bald eagle is depicted with shield and clutching arrows and the olive branch of Peace.
To qualify as First Releases, all coins must be received by NGC within 30 days of release. Adding to the exclusive nature of this special label designation, is the signature of John Mercanti.
