Why purchase this Emergency Production Type I 2021-(S) San Francisco Mint American 1 oz Silver Eagle?

2021 will be a monumental year for the American Silver Eagle program, marking not only the series' 35th anniversary, but also the first year that the original reverse design will change to a brand new design, which will happen in mid-2021. To keep up with the an anticipated high demand and to offset production delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Mint took the step of supplementing its West Point Mint production of bullion Silver Eagles with a run at the San Francisco Mint. This coin comes from that historic San Francisco Mint production.

  • This coin is $1 legal tender in the United States.
  • This coin was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin marks the 35th anniversary of the Silver Eagle.
  • This is one of the final bullion issues on which John Mercanti's original heraldic eagle reverse design will appear.
  • The coin was part of a run of Silver Eagles at the San Francisco Mint that resulted in 1,000,000 coins.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Mint State 69.
  • NGC certified this coin First Releases.
  • Grading information comes on an exclusive Heraldic Eagle label.
  • This coin was given the Type-1 pedigree to note that it bears the original Mercanti Heraldic Eagle reverse design.
  • The coin has been set in a black core holder.

Featuring for the Final Time John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle Reverse

Obverse: The coin's obverse bears the Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman. The morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon as an American flag draped Liberty carries branches in the foreground. Inscriptions on this face include her name, "LIBERTY," the date, "2021," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Adolph Weinman is best known for his two famous contributions to early 20th century numismatics, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. He also designed medals and sculptures, and some of his sculptures continue to be displayed in American cities.

Reverse: On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States that was designed by John Mercanti. Thirteen stars represent the original states at the top, while an eagle protects a union shield below. Along the rim are inscriptions that provide the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's metal content, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR." Nobody in American history has designed more coins and medals than John Mercanti. He spent nearly four decades with the US Mint, part of which time he served as its Chief Engraver.
