Why buy this 2021-(S) Type I 1 oz Silver American Eagle Emergency Production Struck at the San Francisco Mint?
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues on, the United States Mint strives to keep pace with collector demand for Silver Eagles in the face of pandemic-related production delays. That demand is anticipated to be even higher in 2021 thanks to the fact that John Mercanti's original reverse design is set to be replaced mid-year. This coin is part of a historic run of supplemental bullion Silver Eagles that were struck at the San Francisco Mint to help supplement production at the West Point Mint.
Featuring Adolph Weinman's Acclaimed Walking Liberty Design
Obverse: The coin's obverse bears Adolph Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design. Draped in the American flag, Liberty strides confidently carrying laurel and oak branches in her left arm while extending her right hand to greet the morning sun. Obverse inscriptions include her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman made two of the most important contributions to the early 20th century American numismatic renaissance, the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He also created numerous sculptures, some of which remain on display in cities across America to this day.
Reverse: John Mercanti's reverse design was adapted from the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle spreads its wings while protecting a union shield while thirteen stars represent the original states above its head. This is encircled by three rim inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent over three and a half decades with the United States Mint, part of which he spent as its Chief Engraver. During that time, he created more coin and medal designs than anyone else in the history of the United States.
