John Mercanti used the Great Seal of the United States as his model for the design. Encircling the image along the rim are the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR. john Mercanti was the twelfth Chief Engraver of the US Mint. He has designed more medals and coins than anyone else in American history.
