History of The American Silver Eagle:
The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States first released November 24, 1986. American Silver eagles essentially are only struck in the one-troy ounce size, which has a face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver altogether. The Silver American Eagle coins were minted at the San Francisco Mint from 1986 – 1992 altogether. Whereas, from 1993 – 2000 the coins were then minted in the Philadelphia Mint. In 2001 the Silver Eagle production moved to West Point where the minting is still done today. Adolph A. Weinman designed the obverse known as The Walking Liberty and John Mercanti designed the reverse.
For 35 years (1986-2021), the U.S. Mint markedly struck the same design for the beloved American Silver Eagle. This is accordingly one of the #1 reasons why John Mercanti signed American eagles are especially the most sought after and prized modern graded coins available in the market. This coin is surely a must for your John Mercanti Signed Silver Eagle Collection.
