PAN has acquired a limited number of 120 American Numismatic Association’s, 1989 Pittsburgh Convention Badges. This 1.25″ medal was designed, sculpted, and engraved by 12th U. S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti. PAN has had a very long and friendly relationship with Mr. Mercanti from PAN’s early beginnings to the present day. John has graciously hand signed 120 numbered cards that are placed with each medal in the original box of issue. The obverse design depicts young George Washington’s excursion to the mouth of the Ohio River to make observations of the French advancement into the Ohio Valley. This is a very special item that we are making available for the first 120 – $50 donations to PAN.
John Mercanti’s most famous eagle design is the reverse eagle of the very popular American Silver Eagle Coin series along with a myriad of other coin designs while employed at the U.S. Mint. Support PAN and add a nice item to your numismatic collection.
