Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) congratulates John M. Mercanti, 12th chief engraver of the US Mint, for receiving the 2017 David Rittenhouse Award. The prestigious award is named after the first director of the US Mint, and was recently presented by Historic Rittenhouse Town, a national historic landmark district in Philadelphia.

Mercanti, who served as the Mint’s chief engraver from 2006 to 2010, has designed more than 100 US coins and medals, including the reverse of the popular American Silver Eagle and the American Platinum Eagle obverse, as well as eight commemorative coins.
