2023 (W) American Silver Eagle First Day of Issue NGC MS70 Ron Harrigal Signed. Authorized NGC & PCGS Dealer.
NGC's encapsulation guarantees the coins MS70. This coin is Hand Signed by Ron Harrigal. The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States first released November 24, 1986.The US Mint produced the same reverse design famously known as John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle up until 2021. The US Mint then changed the reverse design. The new "Eagle Landing" reverse design depicts an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest.
Weight: 1.000 troy oz. Reverse Designed by Emily Damstra and engraved by Michael Gaudioso. Weinman designed the obverse known as The Walking Liberty. The retired US Mint Director of Design and Engraving had an instrumental level of technical oversight during his tenure.
For over 35 years, Harrigal applied his technical expertise to innovations involving the structural integrity of coins, which ultimately led to him serving as the US Mint Director of Design and Engraving from 2015 until his retirement in 2021. Among his contributions, Harrigal worked on modern edge lettering, which is currently used on Sacagawea and American Innovation Dollars; planchet specifications for many coin programs, including the American Gold Buffalo and American Palladium Eagle coins; and alloy, dimensions and die specifications for large format coins. He provided design specifications for dies to create the first US-produced concave coins and managed the redesign of the American Silver and Gold Eagle coins in 2021. Additionally, Harrigal oversaw the first laser frosting application on a US Mint product and the implementation of the privy marks found on 2021 Morgan Dollars. Ron Harrigal's name has been associated with the United States Mint since 1985.
Ron developed the first modern edge-lettered US coin and prototyped two-piece bimetal coin making. He also managed the die shop design and startup at the Denver Mint. Ron Harrigal became acting Chief Engraver for over two years, starting in November 2010. During this time, he managed the creation/design of the Ultra-High 24k gold coin with raised edge lettering, improved die finishing techniques, and multi-level frosting on proof coins.
