Comments

2020-(S) coins have no mint mark

Encapsulated  stated Struck at San Francisco  Mint first Release emergency issue


OBVERSE
-The L in LIBERTY has an angled feature to the foot rather than two straight lines forming the letter. The foot of the letter is also shorter than prior years.
-The E of LIBERTY is also quite different in that the center portion extends to be in line with the upper extension of the letter. On prior years, the center stem does not extend to the length of the upper stem.
-The G of GOD has no serif.
-The U of TRUST as well as the U of UNITED on the coin’s reverse. On the 2008 issues the U is shaped as a small case “u” would be. That is, it shows the down stroke on the right side of the letter.
-The date is much smaller

REVERSE
-The stars appear flatter, slightly larger and closer together
-The letters of 1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR are all taller and actually sit closer to the rim than in previous years.
-The tilde, ~, is also markedly different in shape than on prior years’ issues




The United States Mint was forced to reveal the existence of 79,640 coins struck at
Philadelphia, the lowest bullion strike coins in the 31 year history of the series. Many dealers and collectors are comparing the 2015 (P) coins with the famous 1995 W Proof Silver Eagles that have a mintage of 30,125 coins and sell for $5,000 to 10,000 or higher in PR69 depending on the label and $40,000 to $80,000 in perfect PR70.
