This event birthed the #1 lowest minted coins in the Mint State series, the 2015 (P) American Silver Eagle, with an exclusive mintage of only 76,640! Now, as the current pandemic situation has played out, production at the US Mint and mints around the world have been impacted by shutdowns and logistical issues. The West Point Mint was ordered to close their doors for about a week and during this time the Philadelphia Mint stepped up to the plate to continue producing American Silver Eagles in their absence, 240,000 to be exact. With a mintage of just 240,000 coins, the 2020 (P) Struck at Philadelphia Mint Silver Eagle is the second-rarest issue in the 34-year history of the bullion American Silver Eagle series! You might be wondering how would one know if they had a Silver Eagle struck from the West Point Mint or the Philadelphia Mint if the bullion coins do not have a mint mark?The Silver Eagles struck at the Philadelphia Mint have tracking numbers 400,000 through 400,479 on their sealed US Mint monster box so the grading services know how to recognize one of these boxes upon submission. PCGS has identified eligible coins by putting a (P) on the label as well as "Emergency Production" to certify they are part of the 240,000 struck at Philadelphia.
In addition the label has been hand signed by the 12th U. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti!In the event the wrong item is delivered Coin Advisor will pay for the return.
