2021 marks the last year of the Heraldic Eagle reverse design by John Mercanti, arguably the most famous coin designer of modern times. This is the rare Congratulations set variant, 10x lower in mintage than the standard Proof Silver Eagle...which was already the lowest minted standard release ever! With a low limited mintage and reduced production capacity due to the pandemic, 2021 sold out in exactly one minute - but you can add it to your collection today!
As a Proof 70, your coin will be free of flaws & imperfections and feature a perfect strike. Top-grade coins always hold tremendous value and are a recommended way to collect Silver Eagles. Featuring an authentic Elizabeth Jones Signature, the eleventh Chief Engraver of the US Mint.
This issue is particularly special for the "S" mint mark. San Francisco Silver Eagles are about ten times more rare than their West Point counterpart, since the West Point Mint is the designated producer of Silver Eagles, with other mints joining in only occasionally. However, when San Francisco does chip in, they are usually producing proofs or other special issue. San Francisco has built an image for itself as the "artisan mint" of the US Treasury system.
The Mercanti signature on this piece just adds to its value. Chief Engraver of the United States Mint John Mercanti designed the reverse heraldic eagle and shield image, which has been in use from the Silver Eagle inception in 1986 to the design change in 2021. You can't ask for a more pedigreed addition to your Silver Eagle collection.
