The PAN show competitive collector exhibit area will feature PAN president Tom Uram’s award winning five case exhibit that will display examples of each of the 30 dated years the popular American Eagle silver coins were produced. Mercanti’s eagle design has remained the dominant feature on the coin’s reverse.
