A former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the honorable John Boehner of Ohio, has personally signed inserts on a limited number of the scarce 2020 silver American Eagles struck during the recent emergency production at the United States Mint facility in Philadelphia.

These coins, certified as MS 70 Early Release (ER) and First Day of Issue (FDI) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com), are being offered exclusively by Westminster Mint (www.coin-rare.com).

"I hold the values of economic freedom, individual liberty and personal responsibility very dear. In many ways, American currency represents all of these values. For this reason, I’m very proud to collaborate with NGC to champion the American dream as it is reflected in our nation’s coins," said Boehner, who served nearly a quarter-century in Congress and was the 53rd Speaker of the House from 2011 to 2015.

Silver American Eagle bullion coins dated 2020 were supposed to be struck at the West Point Mint and the San Francisco Mint, but West Point was briefly closed due to the coronavirus. Mint records indicate only 240,000 of the one-ounce silver American Eagles were struck in emergency production at the Philadelphia Mint between April 8 and April 20 this year.

According to NGC, the 2020(P) Philadelphia Mint Silver Eagles from the Philadelphia Mint are the second-rarest issue in the 34-year history of the silver American Eagle bullion coins.

"As a leading dealer in the signature series of NGC graded coins, we’re excited to partner with Mr. Boehner. I expect massive interest for these historic coins with the Boehner-signed NGC inserts," said Ian Clay, President of Westminster Mint and author of the major reference book, Modern Coin Rarities–1986-2016.

"Mr. Boehner joins with other top-tier signers we have offered to collectors including former U.S. Treasurer Anna Escobedo Cabral, former U.S. Mint Director Ed Moy and Mike Castle, the former Delaware Congressman who helped spearhead legislation creating the Mint’s popular 50 State Quarters Program," explained Clay.

"The 2020 (P) emergency silver Eagles are the inaugural offering for Speaker Boehner hand-signed encapsulated coins inserts. Westminster plans to offer other 2020 silver Eagles, gold Eagles, and gold Buffalos as well as many modern rarities from 1986 gold Eagles to 2009 Ultra High Relief and other issues graded a perfect 70 by NGC," revealed Clay.

can’t think of a single reason why i need his autograph???

joera

I can’t think of any reason to buy any coin with any autograph! This website is “COIN NEWS” not “AUTOGRAPH NEWS” and I myself collect coins not autographs! Things were better back in the day when we all bought the coins and not the label.

This company, Westminster Mint, is selling this NGC-slabbed common MS-70 coin with “First Day of Issue” (meaningless) on the label for $499. Absurd!!! Buyer Beware!

This is a puzzling to me as the Pawn Star guys signed labels. Boehner was an Ohio rep??
Hell, maybe i’ll sign some labels….

Stewart

At that price point, ridiculous, perhaps John Boehner drops by my house to hand deliver it, lol. Even then…not worth it. Another stupid gimmick.

Chas. Barber

I wold buy it if there was one of his cigarette butts in the slab… really who gives a rats arse about this…..

sam tweedy

Mike Mezack the “KING” of coin collecting will be hawking these soon he will buy all of them!! UNDERSTAND….LOL

NWRobert

Does the coin have an orange finish? 😛

Seth Riesling

He was known as the “Crying Congressman” & there are some of his tear drops on each coin! = “milk spots”. Lol

Do these “emergency issue” SAEs bear a P mintmark – I can’t tell from the wording in this article – or is this one of those “trust us on this” kinda things? The parenthetical (P) isn’t reassuring

I don’t think so.all you are doing if you buy one is taking a grading company’s word.these are just regular bullion coins made of about $17.50 worth of silver.what really makes this interesting is grading companies and big coin dealers will be the winners.people who buy these are buying the holder and are being taken to the cleaners.
