Owner's Comments

1994-P Silver Dollar PR69DCAM: Vietnam Veterans Memorial { PCGS-3 } (Apr'2010) Mintage: 226,262 (proof) The obverse design of this commemorative features a hand touching the Memorial Wall. The reverse design features three military ribbons. Very effective use of cameo combined with reflective mirrors brings the wall to life. Without a doubt, this gem effectively demonstrates one of the most impressive uses of frosted devices in the two memorial monuments shown. Despite being an unpopular war, this coin remains one of the most sought after in the series. This coin was issued to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
