Why order this 5-Pack of 2021-(S) Emergency Production Struck at San Francisco Mint Type I 1 oz American Silver Eagles?
To keep up with customer demand for Silver Eagles during the COVID-19 pandemic in the face of pandemic related production slow-downs, the United States Mint decided to supplement their striking of 2021 bullion coins with a production run at the San Francisco Mint. Typically they would be struck at the West Point branch. 2021 American Silver Eagles are part of the 35th anniversary issue of the series and are some of the final issues to bear John Mercanti's heraldic eagle reverse design. All five coins in this set have received NGC's Emergency Production pedigree.>
Featuring the Exquisite Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's historic Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty is draped in the American flag as she carries branches while the morning sun emerges from beyond the horizon. "LIBERTY" is inscribed along the top half of the rim, while other obverse inscriptions read, "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known coins in American history, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. He also created numerous sculptures, some of which can be seen displayed prominently in cities across the United States.
Reverse: On the reverse for the final time is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States that was designed by John Mercanti. An eagle spreads its wings while protecting a union shield under thirteen stars, which represent the original states. The image is encircled by three rim inscriptions, which read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti is the most prolific designer of coins and medals in the history of the US Mint. He served as the institution's twelfth Chief Engraver for part of his nearly four decades with it.
