Why purchase this Emergency Production 2021-(P) Type I American Silver Eagle Struck at the Philadelphia Mint?
The covid-19 pandemic caused continued interruptions in the production of Silver Eagles in both 2020 and early 2021. To keep up with production slowdowns in the face of customer demand, the U.S. Mint authorized an production run of bullion Silver Eagles at the Philadelphia Mint. This piece was part of that historic production run. The coin is also part of the 35th anniversary edition of the series and is one of the final bullion issues to include the heraldic eagle reverse design by John Mercanti. The reverse design will be changed in mid-2021, marking a major first for the series!
Featuring Adolph Weinman's Historic Walking Liberty Design
Obverse: The coin's obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty appears the picture of patriotism as she carries laurel and oak branches as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Obverse inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021." Adolph Weinman is best known for two of his contributions to the American numismatic renaissance of the early 20th century, the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He was also a prominent sculptor, and many of his works remain on display in various American cities to this day.
Reverse: On the reverse is a heraldic eagle design that was created by John Mercanti. An eagle protects a union shield under a triangular arrangement of thirteen stars, which represent the original states. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim. John Mercanti is the most prolific designer of coins and medals in the history of the U.S. Mint. He spent more than three and a half decades with the institution, including time as its Chief Engraver.
Nearly Perfect MS69 with Brown Label
This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) second highest grade, Mint State 69. That grade means that the coin appears nearly perfect to the naked eye. The grade comes on a brown label which also carries the Emergency Production pedigree and Struck at Philadelphia designation.
