About this set: Starting with the first modern silver dollar commemorative, in anticipation of the LA Games of the XXIII Olympiad, at least one Silver Dollar has been minted in this series every year (except 1985). Sports is a popular topic, as are presidents (e.g. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Abraham Lincoln), founding fathers (e.g. Benjamin Franklin & John Marshall) and adventurers of all kinds (e.g. Lewis & Clark and the Wright Brothers), those with unbounded resilience in face of overwhelming odds (e.g. Dolly Madison & Jackie Robinson), those with an unfailing sense of duty and purpose (e.g. Crispus Attucks & Robert F. Kennedy), events which standout as milestones of a generation (e.g. Civil War & WWII), American Landmarks (e.g. Statue of Liberty & Yellowstone National Park) and symbols of American ideals (e.g. Constitution, Bald Eagle and the Star Spangled Banner).
