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

The Silver Eagle is set for a mid-2021 redesign, which makes coins struck in the early part of the year some of the last ones to feature John Mercanti's heraldic eagle reverse. Demand for the final issue with the Mercanti design is expected to be high, and due in part to pandemic-related production delays, the United States Mint took the seldom-seen step of deciding to supplement production of bullion Silver Eagles, with a production run at the San Francisco Mint. This coin is one of the pieces from that historic issue.

  • This coin is $1 US legal tender.
  • This coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
  • 1,000,000 of these coins were struck during this production run.
  • This is one of the final bullion Silver Eagle issues on which John Mercanti's reverse design will appear.
  • This piece is part of the 35th anniversary of Silver Eagles.
  • The coin was graded Mint State 70 by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
  • This coin was also certified First Day of Issue.
  • This coin was given the Type-1 pedigree to note that it bears the original Mercanti Heraldic Eagle reverse design.
  • NGC provided its grading information on a Trolle-themed label.

Iconic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman

Obverse: The obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar. An American flag draped Liberty carries laurel and oak branches as the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. Inscriptions on this face include her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman is best known for designing the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He also sculpted numerous works, many of which remain on display in cities throughout the United States.

Reverse: On the reverse is John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle guards a union shield beneath thirteen stars, symbols of the original states. The design is encircled by three rim inscriptions, which 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 has designed more medals and coins than anyone else in the history of the US Mint. He spent over three and a half decades with the institution, including time as its Chief Engraver.

Perfect MS70 FDI with Trolley Label

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their highest grade, Mint State 70. That grade means that the coin appears flawless even under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the coin First Day of Issue, a designation given only to pieces that were submitted through an exclusive process. This information comes on a label that bears an image of one of San Francisco's famous trolley cars.
