1992 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle PCGS PR69 DCAM Mercanti Signed
Final Year of Mintage in the City by the Bay: 1992 Silver Eagle PR69 Deep Cameo Proof
After sellout sales in its first year at the San Francisco mint, the Silver Eagle was minted in the City by the Bay for six more groundbreaking years - culminating in the 1992 Silver Eagle. What better way to commemorate the final year of production at this historic mint than with the 1992 Silver Eagle PR69 Deep Cameo Proof?
Exclusively available at GovMint.com, this proof coin is unique for several important reasons. First, its grade guarantees your coin will be virtually "as struck," a nearly flawless rating by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PGCS). Further, the Deep Cameo (DCAM) designation speaks to the coin's lustrous presentation, with a brilliant mirrored background and frosted images that stand out boldly from the coin's surface. Finally, unlike its far more numerous Brilliant Uncirculated counterparts, these proof coins enjoy lower mintage numbers and the additional feature of being hand-signed by former Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, John Mercanti.
The Silver Eagle is the only 1 oz. silver bullion coin produced in the United States, but beyond its practical value (fully 1 oz. of .999 fine silver, backed by the U.S. Government), the coin is a lasting work art. Its obverse depicts the image of "Walking Liberty" first created by Adolph A. Weinman. This design, used for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar until 1947, depicts Lady Liberty striding across a sun-swept valley, carrying olive branches in her left arm as she extends her right hand. The inscription of the obverse includes "1991", "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." The highly-patriotic reverse, designed by Mercanti himself, features a heraldic eagle holding both an olive branch and multiple arrows, surmounted by thirteen stars. The reverse's inscription includes "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER - ONE DOLLAR," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
History moves quickly, and within a few months of this coin reaching the hands of avid collectors, the minting process of the U.S. Silver Eagle program was moved across the country to Philadelphia. So, this is your chance to own one of the most remarkable examples of the 1992 Silver Eagle - a proof coin in packaging hand-signed by John Mercanti, graded as one of the "best of the best." It can be yours today if you act quickly, before GovMint.com's limited supplies run out.
