Why order this 2020-(S) Emergency Production American 1 oz Silver Eagle Struck at the San Francisco Mint?
COVID-19 disrupted the United States Mint's production of Silver Eagles in 2020. In response to both strong customer demand and pandemic related production slow downs, the Mint decided to supplement the West Point production of bullion Silver Eagles by authorizing a production run at the San Francisco Mint. This coin was part of that authorized production run, making it an interesting memento from the year 2020.
Powerful Patriotic Designs by Adolph Weinman and John Mercanti
Obverse: The coin's obverse bears Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty design, which comes from the Walking Liberty half dollar. Carrying branches of laurel, which represent civilian honors, and oak, which represent military honors, Liberty strides confidently as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Inscriptions on the obverse note her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2020." Adolph Weinman is most famous for his contributions to America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. The best known of these contributions were the Walking Liberty half dollar and the Mercury dime. Weinman also created several sculptures, which continue to be displayed in cities throughout the United States.
Reverse: John Mercanti designed the reverse using the Great Seal of the United States as his model. Thirteen stars represent the original states at the top, while an eagle protects a union shield below. Inscriptions along the rim note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and the date, "2020." John Mercanti spent nearly four decades with the US Mint, part of which time he spent as its Chief Engraver. His work includes more coin and medal designs than anyone else in American history.
