The Silver American Eagles have seen a resurgence of demand during 2020 as a result of many factors. As a global pandemic wrought havoc on economic markets, stocks fell and demand for precious metals surged. The US Mint has required the assistance of several of its branch mint facilities to meet the growing demand for Silver Eagles in 2020 while protecting its workforce. The West Point Mint has continued its production of the coins, with special coining taking place in the spring at the Philadelphia Mint. The San Francisco Mint has continued its supplemental assistance as well, with Monster Boxes available from San Francisco.
All of the 2020 (S) Silver American Eagle Monster Boxes available here for you to purchase come with coins that are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. There are a total of 500 of the 2020 Silver American Eagles in this Monster Box. The green US Mint Monster Box has 25 tubes inside, each one containing 20 Silver Eagles. Each tube is clear acrylic with a green lid featuring the US Mint seal.
On the obverse side of the 2020 (S) Silver Eagles in this Monster Box, you will find the iconic Walking Liberty design. The image from Adolph A. Weinman shows Liberty walking from right to left toward the sun on the horizon with her right hand outstretched toward the horizon. Many have suggested that Weinman took inspiration from Oscar Roty’s “Sower” design used on French coins of the late 19th century.
The reverse field of 2020 (S) Silver American Eagles in the Monster Box comes with a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States as modified by John Mercanti. The former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint modernized the national seal to include a powerful bald eagle with the US national shield on its chest.
These 2020 (S) Silver Eagles have no mint mark. The coins are identifiable as San Francisco Mint specimens based on the mint strap and serial number on the Monster Box.
