Why order this 2021-(P) Type I Struck at the Philadelphia Mint Emergency Production American Silver Eagle?
As the covid-19 pandemic disrupted the U.S. Mint's production of Silver Eagles, to meet collector demand the United States Mint authorized a limited production run of bullion Silver Eagles at the Philadelphia Mint. This coin was one of the 495,000 pieces in that historic run. The coin is also part of the 35th anniversary edition of the series and one of the final bullion issues to bear the original heraldic eagle reverse design of John Mercanti.
Patriotic Heraldic Eagle Design by John Mercanti
Obverse: On the obverse is the iconic Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman. Originally appearing on the half dollar in 1916, the image features an American flag draped Liberty carrying laurel and oak branches as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. The central figure's name, "LIBERTY," joints the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021," among the obverse inscriptions. Adolph Weinman is best known to collectors for designing the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. He also sculpted numerous works that can still be seen prominently displayed in several American cities.
Reverse: The reverse design was modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti. Thirteen stars, symbols of the original states, are arranged in a triangular formation above an eagle, which protects a union shield. The image is encircled by three rim inscriptions, which read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent over three and a half decades with the US Mint, including time as the institution's Chief Engraver. Over the course of his career, he designed more medals and coins than anyone else in American history.
