Why order this San Francisco Mint Type I Emergency Production 2021-(S) 1 oz American Silver Eagle?
2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle and the final year John Mercanti's original heraldic eagle reverse design will appear on the series. The reverse design is set to change for the first time ever during 2021 and will debut later in the year. To keep up with customer demand and to combat pandemic-related production delays, the United States Mint took the unusual step of striking bullion coins at the San Francisco Mint. This coin, which comes from that historic run, is sure to be prized for collectors for decades to come.
Featuring the Exquisite Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Adolph Weinman's famous Walking Liberty design graces the obverse. Draped in the American flag, Liberty extends her right hand above the morning sun while carrying laurel and oak branches in her left arm. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021," are inscribed elsewhere on this face. Adolph Weinman contributed the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime to America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance. He was also a prominent sculptor whose work remains on display in numerous American cities to this day.
Reverse: The reverse bears an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States that was designed by John Mercanti. An eagle holds arrows and an olive branch while protecting a union shield under thirteen stars. Rim inscriptions 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 spent over three and a half decades with the US Mint, part of which he spent as its Chief Engraver. He has designed more medals and coins than any other American in history.
