The coins were primarily minted at the San Francisco Mint from 1986 to 1992. Then they were minted in Philadelphia from 1993 to 2000, and finally, in West Point where they are minted to date.
A Mercanti signature substantially increases the value of the coin given that his autograph is highly desirable by the collectors. Working as an assistant sculptor and engraver for US Mint in 1974, John won a competition organized by the Commission of the Fine Arts to be chosen to design the reverse side of the American Silver Eagles.

The American Eagle is not only the most beloved, but also the official silver bullion coin of the United States minted on November 24, 1986. No American bullion collection is complete without this marvelous piece of art.
