Owner's Comments

1993-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Madison (Bill of Rights) { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 534,001 (proof) Perfect silver rendition of James Madison was issued in his honor and the Bill of Rights which he authored. The reverse features a view of his Virginia home, Montpelier. Interesting that this silver dollar, issued as part of a 3-piece set remembering the Bill of Rights, makes no mention of this American relic. Powerful use of cameo contrast brings Madison's head to life in this unusual perspective.
