The American Silver Eagle series of bullion coins are among the most collected of all bullion series issues around the world. Throughout the 30-year history of the American Eagle coin program, three people have played major roles in the creation and progression of the Silver Eagle series.
Elizabeth Jones: First Female Chief Engraver
In 1981, President Ronald Reagan hired 46 year-old Elizabeth Jones as the first female Chief Engraver of the Mint. Jones was Chief Engraver at the time the American Eagle program began, and her leadership was key in the initial success of not only the American Eagle bullion program, but also in the Modern Commemorative program. MCM is proud to offer American Silver Eagles certified by NGC as MS69, MS70, PF69, and PF70 with Early Releases and First Releases with Jones’s signature.
John M. Mercanti: U.S. Mint Sculptor & Engraver
Sculptor and engraver for the U.S. Mint, John Mercanti has created over 100 different designs for the US Mint. Most notable was his design for the reverse of the American Silver Eagle. Under the direction of Chief Engraver Elizabeth Jones, Mercanti created the heraldic eagle design. It is the first and only design this series has ever had. MCM now carries American Sivler Eagles that have been certified by NGC as MS69 and MS70 with Early Releases and First Releases labels that have been hand-signed by Mercanti.
Edmund C. Moy: Director of the Mint
Edmund Moy worked closely with Chief Engraver John M. Mercanti to oversee the production of the American Eagle bullion program throughout his five year tenure as Mint Director. MCM is proud to offer the 2016 American Silver Eagle certified by NGC as an MS70 with the First Day of Issue label signed by Edmund Moy.
