Why purchase this: 2020-(P) 1 oz Silver $1 American Eagle Struck at Philadelphia?
In the early months of 2020, COVID-19 upended life throughout the world. People, businesses, and institutions were all impacted. Among them was the West Point Mint, which briefly closed its doors on account of the crisis. From April 8-20, production of Silver Eagles moved to the Philadelphia Mint. During that time, 240,000 pieces were struck in the City of Brotherly Love. Struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver, this coin is part of that historic mintage. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin was among those struck in Philadelphia based on handwriting and labeling on the monster box in which it was released.
Featuring the Patriotic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design featured on American half dollars from 1916-1947. It returned for the debut of the Silver Eagle Series in 1986 and has remained there ever since. Liberty wears a Phrygian cap, which identifies her as a freed slave, and is draped in the American flag as she strides confidently to the left side of this face. She bears laurel branches, symbols of honors bestowed upon civilians, and oak branches, which represent honors bestowed upon members of the military, in her left hand. Her right hand is extended in front of her above the morning sun. Obverse inscriptions include her name, "LIBERTY," the date, "2020," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."
The reverse design was created for the Silver Eagle Series by John Mercanti. Mercanti modeled his work on the Great Seal of the United States. Thirteen stars represent the original states at the top of the design. Below, an eagle guards a union shield. In its beak is a ribbon that unfurls to reveal the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." It also holds an olive branch, which indicates a desire for peace, and arrows, which remind all that America is prepared to defend her values, in its talons. This design is encircled by rim inscriptions that note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR."
