Why buy this Emergency Production 2020-(S) 1 oz American Silver Eagle Struck at San Francisco Mint?
Like everything else in 2020, the United States Mint was impacted heavily by the coronavirus. In 2020, the Mint had to rush to keep up with collector demand and to navigate slow downs as part of the current pandemic. As part of that effort, coins like this bullion issue were struck at the San Francisco Mint.
Striking Designs by Adolph Weinman and John Mercanti
Obverse: The coin's obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty half dollar. Liberty bears branches that represent civilian and military honors as she steps confidently toward the left side of this face as the sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2020." Adolph Weinman designed the Mercury dime and the Walking Liberty half dollar, two of the most important coins in America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. He also created many sculptures over his career, some of which remain displayed in American cities today.
Reverse: The reverse image was created by John Mercanti specifically for the Silver Eagle. A union shield is protected by an eagle under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. This design is encircled by three rim inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti was the twelfth person to serve as the Chief Engraver of the US Mint. During his nearly four decades with the institution, he designed more of its coins and medals than anyone else in its history.
Virtually Perfect MS69 with Brown Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided this coin's grade on a brown label, which also bears the Emergency Production pedigree. The grading company certified that this piece is in Mint State 69 condition, which means that it appears perfect to the unaided eye.
