1993 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Eagle PCGS PR69 DCAM Mercanti Signed
First Year Philadelphia Mint Proof Silver Eagle Hand Signed by John Mercanti
Between 1986 and 1992, all Proof Silver Eagles were stuck at the San Francisco Mint. In 1993, the production of the premier collector coin, the Proof Silver Eagle, moved to the Philadelphia Mint. Collectors love 'firsts,' and there are many in the Silver Eagle series. But, this 1993 One-Ounce Silver Proof Eagle is one of the more elusive. And, it's even harder to find with a genuine signature of the coin's designer, John Mercanti.
Since 1792, there have ONLY been 12 official and prominent Chief Engravers of the U.S. Mint. This prestigious position is highly important, as the Chief Engraver oversees the production of all coinage for circulation and for collectors. Mercanti was the Chief Engraver from 2006 to 2010, but started at the Mint in 1974. John Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in United States Mint history (dating back to 1792). He designed the reverse of the Silver Eagle and the obverse of the Platinum Eagle that has been struck in proof condition annually since 1997. He designed quite a few modern gold and silver commemoratives, in addition to five states in the States Quarter Program.
This example grades Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PR69UCAM) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). It also has a label hand-signed by Mr. Mercanti, sealed with the coin in the holder to protect its grade and pedigree forever. Add this prized 'First" to your collection today!
