Two Bas-Relief Mercanti Sculptures to Be Auctioned by PAN

John Mercanti - Plasters - PAN Auction

By Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists ……

U.S. Mint 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti has created two bas-relief plaster sculptures that will be the highlight of the PAN Benefit Auction to occur on the evening of Thursday October 26 during the association’s yearly banquet that is held in conjunction with the PAN Fall Coin Show and Convention on October 26-28 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at the Monroeville Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The first sculpture is a beautiful likeness of 26th President of the United States, Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Jr., hand-signed by Mr. Mercanti. His work is world-renowned and this sculpture is a stunning example of his accomplished talent.

The second item is a majestic Bison.

A similar example with a mountain range in the background was auctioned at the previous PAN banquet. This sculpture lacks a mountain range but does include a small cactus. John Mercanti has hand-signed this piece as well.

The PAN Banquet will be held at the LeMont Restaurant on top of Mt. Washington overlooking the popular view of the City of Pittsburgh. Tickets and more details can be found on the PAN website – www.PANcoins.org.
