Why purchase this 5-Pack of 2020-(P) $1 American 1 oz Silver Eagle Struck at Philadelphia?
COVID-19 upended live around the globe in 2020. People lost their jobs, their businesses, and their lives in virtually every country. Among the institutions impacted was the U.S. Mint, which shut down its West Point branch in April. From April 8-20, production of Silver Eagles moved to the Philadelphia Mint, which produced 240,000 pieces of the world's favorite bullion coin during that period. These five coins are among those historic issues, which were identified as coming from the Philadelphia Mint based on labeling and handwritten marks on the monster boxes in which they were released. Each coin in this set was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Featuring Adolph Weinman's Patriotic Walking Liberty Design
The obverse of these coins features Adolph Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design, which returned for the series in 1986 after first appearing on half dollars from 1916-1947. Draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap on her head, Liberty strides confidently toward the left side of this face. The cap indicates that she is a freed slave. She carries with her laurel branches, which represent honors bestowed upon civilians, and oak branches, which represent honors bestowed upon members of the military. She also extends her right hand in front of her above the morning sun, which rises in the distance. Obverse inscriptions include her name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2020."
2020 marks the last year for the reverse design that has been part of the series since 1986, John Mercanti's adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle protects a union shield, which represents the country. In its beak is a ribbon that bears the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The bird also grasps arrows, symbols of America's willingness to stand up for her values, and an olive branch, which expresses a preference for peace, in its talons. Above is an arrangement of thirteen stars, which symbolize the original states. Rim inscriptions encircle the image, together reading, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR."
