PCGS is pleased to announce that it will be recognizing San Francisco Mint 75th Anniversary Silver Proof Set coins. We have created two special labels for this one-time product. The first label recognizes the source of the coins as the San Francisco Mint 75th Anniversary program. The second special label recognizes First Strike™ coins from this program. All standard First Strike rules will apply as described here. The coins must only come sealed after the First Strike cutoff date.
The insert below is specially designed to showcase an autograph by John M. Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint and designer of the reverse of the Silver Eagle. The Mercanti labels are available through the PCGS Bulk department. You must have a minimum of 15 sets for your submission to qualify for PCGS Bulk Service.
The Mercanti insert pictured above can be requested on your sets from the U.S. Mint through PCGS for $30.00 per coin! On your PCGS Submission Form, request which insert you prefer and all coins will be placed into tamper-evident holders. Please contact Customer Service if you have any further questions regarding the grading of this set.
