Why buy this 2021-(P) Type I American Silver Eagle Struck at the Philadelphia Mint - Emergency Production?
To keep up with collector demand for one of the world's favorite bullion coins, the American Silver Eagle, in the face of production delays brought on by the covid-19 pandemic, the United States Mint authorized a production run of 2021-dated bullion Silver Eagles to be struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Traditionally they would been struck at the West Point Mint. This coin is part of that historic run, which totaled 495,000 pieces. It is also one of the final bullion issues in the series to feature John Mercanti's heraldic eagle reverse design, which is set to be replaced during 2021.
Featuring John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle Design
Obverse: On the obverse is Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty design. Liberty carries laurel and oak branches while extending her right arm forward to greet the new day as the morning sun begins to rise. Obverse inscriptions include her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known coins of the 20th century, the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He contributed other numismatic work, as well as sculpted numerous pieces, some of which are still displayed in various American cities.
Reverse: On the reverse is a heraldic eagle design that John Mercanti modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle guard a union shield below thirteen stars, which symbolize the original states. Along the rim are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti was the twelfth Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, a post he held for part of his nearly 40 years with the institution. He has designed more medals and coins than anyone else in American history.
