Why buy this 2021-(S) Type I American 1 oz Silver Eagle Emergency Production Struck at the San Francisco Mint?
2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle series, plus John Mercanti's original reverse design is set to be replaced in the middle of 2021! To keep up with an expected high demand and to offset pandemic related production delays, the United States Mint took the seldom-seen step of deciding to supplement production of bullion Silver Eagles, which are usually struck at the West Point Mint, at the San Francisco Mint. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified the San Francisco run as "Emergency Production." This coin is part of that historic issue.
Stunning Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The coin's obverse features the Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman. Liberty appears the picture of patriotism as she greets the new day while carrying laurel and oak branches in her left arm. Her name, "LIBERTY," spreads out along the rim, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and date, "2021," are also inscribed on this face. Adolph Weinman played an essential role in America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. His best known contributions to the effort were the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Reverse: Appearing on the reverse for the final time is John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle spreads its wings as it guards a union shield under thirteen stars, symbols of the original states. This design is encircled by rim inscriptions that note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti is the most prolific designer of coins and medals in American history. His tenure with the US Mint spanned nearly four decades, part of which he spent as its Chief Engraver.
Impeccable MS70 ER
This coin received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Mint State 70. To earn that grade, a coin must appear perfect as seen under 5x magnification. This coin was also certified Early Releases, which means that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial release from the mint. NGC certifies that this coin was "Struck at the San Francisco Mint," and also gave it their "Emergency Production" pedigree due to the circumstances surrounding its striking. This information is relayed on the certification label.
