Recently retiring from the U.S. Mint towards the end of 2020, Michael Gaudioso crafted numerous designs himself and from other United States Mint artists. Most notably, Michael Gaudioso is responsible for sculpting Emily Damstra’s new Type 2 Silver Eagle reverse design of 2021.
2019 was an exciting year for numismatics. The United States Mint introduced a number of "first-evers" including unprecedented collaborations with other renowned mints, a number of historic releases from the West Point Mint Branch, and the lowest mintage Silver Eagle to date! While Mints around the world commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing and the Lunar Year of the Pig with stunning coin releases.
You probably know that the recently-issued 2019 Apollo 11 50th anniversary $1 silver commemorative coins, are the first U.S. Mint commemoratives struck from .999 fine silver. What you may not know however, is that this trend in “fineness” from the United States Mint is continuing for select releases!
