Why purchase this 2020-(S) San Francisco Emergency Production 1 oz Silver American Eagle?
The American Silver Eagle has been an icon of the United States Mint ever since it debuted in 1986. In 2020, to off-set customer demand for bullion Silver Eagles as well as to mitigate production delays associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Mint authorized a limited production run of bullion Silver Eagles at the San Francisco Branch Mint.
Featuring Classic Designs by Adolph Weinman and John Mercanti
Obverse: The coin's obverse design was taken from the Walking Liberty half dollar, which was designed by Adolph Weinman. Draped in the American flag, Liberty carries laurel and oak branches against a backdrop of the rising sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2020" are inscribed elsewhere on this face. Adolph Weinman is best known to coin collectors for his Walking Liberty half dollar and Mercury dime. Besides his numismatic work, he also sculpted many pieces that are on display throughout the United States.
Reverse: John Mercanti's reverse design was inspired by the Great Seal of the United States. Thirteen five-pointed stars represent the original states above an eagle that protects a union shield. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," its weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR," encircle the design along the rim. John Mercanti spent more than three and a half decades with the United States Mint, including time as its Chief Engraver. Nobody in American history has designed more coins and medals than he has.

This coin's grade comes on a brown label. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Mint State 70. That grade is only given to coins that appear perfect under 5x magnification. The certification label also bears the grading company's "Emergency Production" pedigree.
