Why purchase this Philadelphia Mint - Emergency Production 2021-(P) Type I American Silver Eagle?
This Silver Eagle was part of an authorized run of 2021-dated bullion Silver Eagles that were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Such issues are generally struck at the West Point Mint. The U.S. Mint struck 495,000 of these coins at its Philadelphia branch in to keep up with steady collector demand in the face of covid-19 related production delays. The coin is also part of the 35th anniversary issue of the world's favorite bullion coin and is one of the final bullion issues of the coin to include John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle reverse design, which is set to be replaced mid-year.
Featuring John Mercanti's Classic Heraldic Eagle Design
Obverse: The coin's obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty strides confidently with laurel and oak branches in her left arm while extending her right arm to greet the new day as the morning sun begins to rise. The figure's name, "LIBERTY," joins the date, "2021," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," among the obverse inscriptions. Adolph Weinman was a prominent sculptor, and his work continues to be displayed in many American cities. His best known contributions to numismatics were the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime.
Reverse: On the reverse is a design that John Mercanti modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. It consists of an eagle protecting a union shield under thirteen stars, symbols of the original states. Inscriptions on the rim that together encircle the image read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti served the U.S. Mint for nearly four decades, part of which he spent as its twelfth Chief Engraver. Nobody in the institution's history has designed more medals and coins than he has.
