With intense demand for the Silver American Eagle in recent years, the West Point Mint became overwhelmed considering it also strikes the American Gold Eagle and American Platinum Eagle, as well as the proof and burnished versions of all American Eagle coins. These 2012(S) Silver American Eagle coins are a product of the supplemental production in San Francisco.
Originally struck in San Francisco, American Silver Eagles are now produced predominantly at the West Point Mint. However, intense demand for the coins has pushed the San Francisco Mint back into active production.
On the obverse side of all 2012 (S) Silver American Eagle Coins is the image of Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty. Representing the nation’s strides toward a brighter future, the image first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse side bears John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle depiction. A chief engraver at the US Mint, Mercanti designed the image of a bald eagle behind a heraldic shield, with 13 stars above its head to represent the original colonies, and its talons clutching arrows and an olive branch.
