Flawless 1995 Tenth-Ounce Gold Eagle Signed by John Mercanti
Today, it’s common practice for collectors to submit their coins for grading to respected third-party grading services like the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). And it’s also fairly common that a good number of those coins return certified as being in perfect Uncirculated Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, flawless even under magnification. But back in 1995, that wasn’t the case for the $5 Tenth-Ounce Gold Eagle.
What also didn’t occur more than a quarter of a century ago was having one’s coins sealed in protective holders with labels that were personally signed by legendary figures in the numismatic world. Take this coin for example. Not only does it come in flawless MS70 condition — a distinction that means this perfectly-graded coin has ZERO imperfections showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended — but it has been encapsulated with a label signed by John Mercanti, the United States Mint’s 12th Chief Engraver! A giant in the numismatic world, Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any person in U.S. Mint history!
According to the NGC population report, just 14 percent of all the coins submitted for grading received the coveted MS70 grade. And let’s not forget — not every bullion Gold Eagle even gets submitted for grading. In fact, just 27 of these coins are known to exist in both flawless condition AND sealed with a label signed by John Mercanti. We happen to have several of these low-population coins, so hurry and secure one or more for your collection now!
THE ULTIMATE SAINT-GAUDENS CREATION . . .—These Tenth-Ounce Gold Eagles exhibit a stunning design of Lady Liberty walking forward with focus and purpose, torch in one hand and olive branch in the other. Originally introduced on the famous 1907 $20 Double Eagle and born from collaboration between Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Theodore Roosevelt, this design reveals beautifully intricate details (like the U.S. Capitol building in the distance) with each viewing.
. . . PAIRED WITH A PATRIOTIC FAMILY! – Featuring a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch to his family, sculptor Miley Busiek’s design for the reverse continues to serve as a perfect modern companion to Saint-Gaudens’ vision.
