First issued in 1986 the American Silver Eagle has become far and away the most collected modern silver coin in the World! Each Silver Eagle is struck from 1oz of. The obverse design features a modern rendition of Adolph A. Weinman's classic Lady Liberty and the reverse features a heraldic eagle with a shield. The reverse was designed by legendary coin designer and the 12th Chief Engraver of the U. Although the West Point Mint is the primary production location for bullion Silver Eagles, this past summer, demand was extremely strong, and the Mint was unable to meet the demand. In an effort to keep up, both the Philadelphia and the San Francisco Mints were 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 have tracking numbers 400,000 through 400,479 on their sealed US Mint monster box and the Silver Eagles struck at the San Francisco Mint have tracking numbers 800,000 through 801,999 so the grading services know how 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 designer, John M. Now, for the first time in 35 years, the U. Mint has decided to make a dramatic change to this now classic Silver Eagle design. Starting in 2021, the Silver Eagle will have a new reverse design, meaning that this 2020 ASE will be one of the last with the original Mercanti designed Heraldic Eagle.
