Buy with Confidence
Nothing says authentic like an artist's original signature on his work. That's just what you get here with this 2013 Silver Eagle, personally signed by John Mercanti, the twelfth Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint. When America's current silver Dollar was authorized in 1985, Mr. Mercanti went to work and designed the reverse of the coin. Over the years since, the Silver Eagle Dollar grew to become one of the world's most popular silver coins. This special limited-edition Silver Eagle is sealed in its holder with John Mercanti's personal signature. Each coin is graded Mint State-69 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and is a First Strike. The coin and the signature are sonically sealed in the holder to assure the authenticity forever.
The design on the coin's obverse was taken from the "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman which originally had been used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin of the United States from 1916 to 1947. As this bold design had been a public favourite, and indeed one of the most beloved designs of any United States coinage of modern times, silver or otherwise. The design was revived for the Silver Eagle decades later. The obverse is inscribed with the year of minting or issuance, the word LIBERTY, and the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST.
The reverse was designed by John Mercanti and portrays a heraldic eagle behind a shield; the eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States; above the eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies. The reverse is inscribed with the phrases UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ FINE SILVER ONE DOLLAR, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
