Owner's Comments

2009-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Abraham Lincoln { PCGS-3 } (May'2009) Mintage: 375,000 (proof) On the 200th anniversary of his birth, just one hundred years after he first appeared on US coins, Abraham Lincoln's bust graces the silver dollar, with words from his Gettysburg Address on the reverse. Great design, perfect fields and highly frosted devices: easily one of the most striking of the silver commemorative issues of this series. It is also one of the few modern commemorative coins that realized the full number of pieces authorized by Congress, in this case one-half million pieces including uncirculated business strikes.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 2009 Lincoln Commemorative coins were issued in 2009 to commemorate Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birth date. The coins were authorized under Public Law 109-285.

The U.S. Mint implemented a 500,000 coin limit for both the $1 Proof and Uncirculated coins combined.

The coins first became available from the U.S. Mint on February, 12, 2009. The same day, the first 2009 Lincoln cent with a new design was also released by the U.S Mint.

By March 27th, the U.S. Mint sold out the uncirculated coins. Two days after, the Mint sold out the Proof coins as well. Therefore, within about a six week period, the Mint sold out the 450,000 Lincoln Commemorative coins of both the Uncirculated and Proof versions combined. Atleast 60 percent of the sold coins were beleived to be the proof versions.
