2021 ASE 3PC SET MERCANTI SPECIAL RELEASES: (P) (S) MS70; W ADVANCE RELEASE

2021 was shaping up to be one of the most significant dates in coin collecting history because the U.S. Mint is changing the design of the American Silver Eagle, the best-selling and most widely collected silver coins in the world. As the covid-19 pandemic disrupted the U.S. Mint's production of Silver Eagles, to meet collector demand the Mint authorized a limited production run of bullion Silver Eagles at the Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mints. These three-coin sets feature the two low mintage emergency coins minted at the Philadelphia Mint (P) and San Francisco Mint (S). These are the final coins issued with the beloved Heraldic Eagle reverse design. Also included is the 2021 Proof coin struck at the West Point Mint. This coin holds the unique distinction of being the first “Advance Release” U.S. mint coin and the only “Advance Release” Silver Eagle coin in the type 1 Heraldic Eagle series. Only 30,000 coins were released in advance of their public release.  
 
Condition

Coins are graded on a 70-point scale with 70 being absolute perfection These coins have been signed by John Mercanti, the twelfth Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint who designed the iconic Heraldic Eagle. His initials JM has appeared on every Silver Eagle coin since its debut in 1986! John Mercanti is one of the most recognizable names in all of numismatics, with one hundred design credits at the U.S. Mint, more than anyone else in history!
