Owner's Comments

1999-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Dolley Madison { PCGS-3 } (Jul'2009) Mintage: 158,247 (proof) The coin's obverse depicts Dolley Madison on the ground of the Montpelier estate. A bouquet of her favorite Cape Jasmine flowers and the Ice House Template, frame the image. The photograph like image is punctuated by heavy frosting and multiply reflective mirrors. She is the first American woman to be featured in the modern commemorative series; although, not the first to appear on American coins (Susan B. Anthony and the Native American Sacajawea are the two ahead of her). During the War of 1812 she rescued some priceless American artifacts before the British burned the White House, so she is well deserving of this honor. This coin is the number one choice of many for the most beautiful of the silver modern commemorative coins (including mine).
