Rush Production of U.S. Silver Dollars Creates 2nd Lowest Mintage in History
One of the most popular ways to buy silver is the Silver Eagle—legal-tender U.S.
Silver Dollars struck in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver. But in early 2020, the U.S. Mint faced two problems: the COVID-19 pandemic, and the resulting increased demand for silver. While prices shot up, the mint temporarily shut down the West Point Mint, which strikes each year’s Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) Silver Eagles.
Philadelphia Steps Up
To help address this demand, an “Emergency Production” run of Silver Eagles was struck in Philadelphia. Production lasted just 13 days, and resulted in the second smallest mintage of BU Silver Eagles ever struck! But how to tell a 2020 West Point Silver Eagle from a Philadelphia one?
Certified “Struck at” Coins
Thanks to some skilled detective work, we’re able to offer a limited number of coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), one of the world’s leading third-party coin grading services, as
both “Struck at Philadelphia Mint” and “Emergency Production.” They even come graded as near-flawless Mint State-69 (MS69) condition— just one point away from perfection!
