Jaime Hernandez: On October 1998, Congress authorized the production of four different 2000 Library of Congress Commemorative coins. This was to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the world's largest library, located in Washington, D.C. across from the U.S. Capitol Building. The Library of Congress contains approximately 119 million items and has roughly 530 miles of bookshelves, making it one of the world's most informative venues.
The U.S. Mint produced two one dollar silver coins in both mint state and proof. For the ten dollar denomination, the Mint produced a unique bimetallic gold and platinum coin, something never done before in the history of the U.S. Mint.
Pre-Issue Price: $380.
Regular Issue Price : $405.
