2015-(P) Silver American Eagle PCGS MS70 Mercanti Signature
Now with Limited Quantity Mercanti Signature Label; only 79,640 coins struck, the 2015 (P) Silver American Eagle is by far the rarest bullion American Silver Eagle in the entire 31 year series, which has been issued annually since 1986.
The US Mint has typically used either color-coded straps or straps bearing the specific US Mint facility's name so Silver Eagle investors would know which facility each monster box of Silver Eagles was minted at. However, during the last 12 months, the US Mint stop using this system and instead moved to a "generic strap" that each facility used.
This caused a few Silver Eagle enthusiasts to pry and ask the US Mint to clarify which facility was minting US Mint Silver Eagle coins. The US Mint declined to answer and so a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request was filed. The US Mint complied with the FOIA and provided the following information on American Silver Eagle Coins coming from the Philadelphia Mint.
