Struck at San Francisco Emergency Production. NGC MS70 First Day of Issue. Silver Eagle - Type 2. First Day of Issue Mercanti Signature.First issued in 1986 the American Silver Eagle has become far and away the most collected modern silver coin in the World! Over the years, several different types of Silver Eagles have been struck (Mint State, Proof, Burnished, Reverse Proof & Enhanced) but one thing that has remained unchanged has been the design. Now, for the first time in 35 years, the classic American Silver Eagle is being updated with an enhanced obverse design and a brand new reverse design! The classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman is still featured on the obverse of the Type 2 Silver Eagle. However, thanks to technological advancements in the design and minting process, Liberty now encompasses some of Weinman's original details that were not previously possible!
The new reverse was designed by the artist Emily Damstra and sculpted by U. It features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to it's nest. Also included in the reverse design are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "1 OZ FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR". Although the West Point Mint is the primary production location for bullion Silver Eagles, in recent years, demand has been extremely strong.
In an effort to keep up with demand, both the Philadelphia and the San Francisco Mints have been used to augment American Silver Eagle Bullion production. You might be wondering how would one know if they had a Silver Eagle struck from the West Point Mint, the Philadelphia Mint or the San Francisco Mint if the bullion coins do not have a mint mark? The Silver Eagles struck at the Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mint have specific serial numbers on their sealed US Mint monster box that allows the grading services to recognize one of these boxes upon submission.When Silver Eagles are submitted for grading and can be verified as coming from either Philadelphia or San Francisco, NGC is adding a (P) designation for Philadelphia or an (S) designation for San Francisco on the label as well as adding the "Emergency Production" designation. In addition the label has been hand signed by the 12th U. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti! In the event the wrong item is delivered Coin Advisor will pay for the return.
