Among all the American coin engravers in history, there is no doubt that John Mercanti is the most famous. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that his signature is the one that is most in demand in the American Eagle coin program.With Mercanti's signature on the label, a coin's value would be magnified tremendously. Mercanti's greatest contribution to the coin world is his design of the Heraldic Eagle that adorned the reverse side of the American Silver Eagle coins from 1986 to 2021. The design featured an eagle with widespread wings clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons. This design was chosen by the Commission of the Fine Arts as the winner of a contest to determine the new reverse design of the American Eagle, which was then yet to be released. After 35 years of adorning the reverse of the American Eagle coins, it was time for Mercanti's epic design to retire, and what better to replace it than the striking Landing Eagle created by professional coin designer Emily Damstra.
In contrast to the still pose of its predecessor, Damstra's eagle is in mid-flight and about to land, wings outstretched, talons firmly grasping an oak branch. Damstra has created numerous coin designs for the US Mint and the Royal Canadian Mint. As a new name in the American Eagle coin program, Damstra's signature on the first release of the new reverse is very much in demand among collectors around the world. As one of the vastly talented engravers and sculptors at the US Mint for the past 10 years, it is only fitting that Michael Gaudioso finally gets his well-deserved global recognition by doing the engraving for the new reverse of the American Eagles. Among Gaudioso's latest achievements in the coin world is the engraving of the commemorative coin for the 2020 Basketball Hall of Fame, as well as the commemorative coin for the 2016 American Legion.
Edmund Moy was appointed by Pres. Bush as US Mint Director in 2006. Under his management, the US Mint had produced quite a number of distinctive and sensational coins that strongly attracted the interest of collectors and investors.
