Why purchase this 5-Pack of $1 American 2020-(P) 1 oz Silver Eagles Struck at Philadelphia?
Few coins in history represent a time, space, and event quite like these 2020-(P) Silver Eagles. The West Point Mint shut down operations from April 8-20 due to COVID-19. During that time, the Philadelphia Mint produced these iconic coins. Since bullion Silver Eagles do not have mint marks, these coins were identified as Philadelphia Mint by labeling and handwriting markings on their monster boxes. Just 240,000 of these coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint during the West Point Mint's shutdown. Each piece was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Featuring Adolph Weinman's Stunning Walking Liberty Design
The obverse design of these coins comes from Adolph Weinman's half dollar. Known as Walking Liberty, it features Liberty striding to the left side of this face draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, which identifies her as a freed slave. She carries in her left arm laurel and oak branches, which represent civilian honors and military honors, respectively. She extends her right hand forward, as if greeting the new day, as the sun rises from beyond the horizon below. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," America's national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2020."
John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States features on the reverse for the last time in 2020. The design has appeared on this series since its inception in 1986. An eagle guards a union shield under an arrangement of thirteen stars, which represent the original states. In the bird's beak is a ribbon that bears the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM," while in its talons are arrows and an olive branch. The arrows represent America's willingness to defend her values, while the olive branch indicates a desire for peace. 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."
Virtually Flawless MS69 ER with Liberty Bell Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided the grading information for these coins on labels that feature the Liberty Bell, one of Philadelphia's historic landmarks. Each coin in the set earned a Mint State 69 grade. That grade indicates that a coin appears perfect to the unaided eye. NGC also certified each coin Early Releases, which means that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial release from the mint.
