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).

1983-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Olympic { PCGS-3 } (Apr'2010) Mintage: 1,577,025 (proof) A very striking top-pop piece thanks to its haze-free perfect mirrors and heavy frosting. This was the first commemorative silver dollar of the twentieth century, and the first of many U.S. Olympic theme coins to follow paying tribute to the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. The obverse features the Discobolus of Myron, a famous statue of a discus thrower; while, the reverse features the prerequisite eagle whose head is shown in profile.
1984-S Olympic S$1 9612 1984-S $1 PR70DC 167 0 1670
1984-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Olympic { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 1,801,210 (proof) Superb flawless mirrors without any of that milky haze that plagues so many of these early proof commemorative coins with expansive fields. This piece simply shines, depicting the entrance of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where a pair of life-sized bronze nude statues of male and female athletes atop Olympic Gateway oversee the event, and for the second time is the Opening Ceremony venue for the Olympics.
1986-S Statue of Liberty S$1 9621 1986-S $1 PR70DC 419 0 4190
1986-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Statue of Liberty { PCGS-3 } (Nov'2009) Mintage: 6,414,638 (proof) The silver dollar obverse features a view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island immigration center. The reverse features the statue's hand and torch with the concluding words of Emma Lazarus's poem The New Colossus. With its frosted surfaces and multiply reflective mirrors, this piece is perfect for America's ultimate symbol of freedom and liberty.
1987-S Constitution S$1 9625 1987-S $1 PR70DC 397 0 3970
1987-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Constitution { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 2,747,116 (proof) People from all walks of life are presented here, coming together as "We The People...". Celebrating the bicentennial of the Untited States Constitution, this piece exhibits a beautiful classic design perfectly rendered with highly frosted devices and powerful reflective mirrors. This silver dollar sets a precedence with a number of "firsts". The first large silver coin not depicting a human on the obverse; the first to provide a numeric denomination "1" instead of "ONE"; the first NOT to bear an eagle on the reverse.
1988-S Olympic S$1 9629 1988-S $1 PR70DC 351 0 3510
1988-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Olympics { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2009) Mintage: 1,359,366 (proof) Making note of US participation at the Olympic Games in Seoul North Korea, after the US boycotted the Moscow Summer Games in 1980, and Moscow returned the favor at the Games in Los Angeles in 1984, this piece has unusually perfect broad expansive fields, deeply mirrored on both sides and contrasted by heavily frosted simple devices. Again, the silver dollar is sans an eagle on the reverse. This design features the flame of the torch of Lady Liberty merging with that of the Olympic torch, and world peace through sports seems to be the theme.
1989-S Congress S$1 9635 1989-S $1 PR70DC 116 0 1160
1989-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Congress { PCGS-3 } (Apr'2010) Mintage: 762,198 (proof) This commemorative was released to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Congress. The legislative body had first convened under the US Constitution in 1789 in Philadelphia. This is a device intensive obverse, while the reverse features mostly wide open fields, and no doubt helps to make top grade pieces rare. This piece shows what a difference flawless surfaces makes with brilliant haze-free fields.
1990-P Eisenhower S$1 9639 1990-P $1 PR70DC 266 0 2660
1990-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Eisenhower { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 1,144,461 (proof) Remembering the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ike, this coin honors him as a Five Star General and the 34th President of the United States. This is the only US coin to feature two portraits of the same person on the same side of the coin. Simply a perfect rendering and fitting tribute to the man who led so many of the Greatest Generation.
1991-S Mount Rushmore S$1 9645 1991-S $1 PR70DC 293 0 2930
1991-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Mount Rushmore { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2009) Mintage: 738,419 (proof) In reflection of the Golden Anniversary of this national landmark, this coin is perfect in its beauty captured in silver, with highly frosted devices over deeply reflective mirrors. The obverse is quite similar to the half dollar design, unusual for this series; while, the reverse is one of the least memorable and least aesthetically pleasing.
1991-P Korea S$1 9653 1991-P $1 PR70DC 94 0 940
1991-P Korea Silver Dollar PCGS PR70DCAM { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2010) - Mintage: 618,488 (proof) Perfect silver mirrors, deeply and multiply reflective grace this action war piece remembering Korea. One of the rarer pieces of the commemorative silver dollars in this top-pop condition, this piece also was issued on the 38th anniversary as tribute to the conflict on the 38th parallel.
1991-S USO S$1 9659 1991-S $1 PR70DC 113 0 1130
1991-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: USO { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 371,275 (proof) Released to mark the 50th anniversary of the United Service Organization, this somewhat "tokenesque" piece does have perfect highly reflective mirrors and heavily frosted devices.

1992-W Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: White House { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 375,851 (proof) The cornerstone for the White House was originally placed on October 13, 1792. This bicentennial tribute displays a view of the north portico of the White House. The reverse of the coin depicts James Hoban, who was the architect of the White House. Effective use of contrast of cameo devices and brilliant black mirrors seem to bring this building to life in perfect fashion. This is the first of several silver modern commemorative dollars to be minted at the West Point (W) mint.
1992-P Columbus S$1 9665 1992-P $1 PR70DC 104 0 1040
1992-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Columbus { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 385,241 (proof) Issued for the quincentenary of Columbus' discovery of the Americas, the obverse of the coin features Christopher Columbus standing with a flag in his right hand and a globe to his left. Ships and land can be seen rising in the background. The reverse of the coin features a visionary split view of a fifteenth century sailing vessel and the twentieth century space shuttle Discovery.

1993-S Madison S$1 9671 1993-S $1 PR70DC 73 0 730
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.
1991-95-W World War II S$1 9677 1991-95-W $1 PR70DC 143 0 1430
1991-95-W Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: World War II { PCGS-3 } (Jan'2010) Mintage: 342,041 (proof) This piece was issued in 1993 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of America's involvement in World War II from 1941 to 1945. This is a great action tribute to the "Greatest Generation" among whom were those who stormed the beaches of Normandy on June 6, 1944 (D-Day), or the Day of Days. There is wonderful cameo contrast on this picture perfect piece.
1994-S World Cup S$1 9683 1994-S $1 PR70DC 188 0 1880
1994-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: World Cup { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 576,978 (proof) Honoring the XV FIFA World Cup playoff, where the final soccer game was held in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, the obverse features two soccer players running towards the ball in play. Brazil beat Italy 3-2 in that final. Sports action comes to life against the brilliant silver fields, with a snazzy logo on the reverse in perfect cameo relief.
1993-S Jefferson S$1 9689 1993-S $1 PR70DC 117 0 1170

The commemorative coins were issued to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Thomas Jefferson's birth.

1994-P Prisoners of War S$1 9691 1994-P $1 PR70DC 62 0 620

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.
1994-P Women in Military S$1 9695 1994-P $1 PR70DC 45 0 450
1994-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Women in Military { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2010) Mintage: 213,201 (proof) Very rare top-pop features a profile view of servicewomen in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The reverse features a view of the proposed Women in Military Service for American Memorial. Perfect brilliant silver fields are complimented nicely by heavily frosted devices.
1994-S Capitol S$1 9697 1994-S $1 PR70DC 168 0 1680
1994-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Capitol { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2009) Mintage: 279,416 (proof) For the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington DC, this coin features the Capitol Building. It had already been featured on some of the 1989 Congress Commemorative Coins and would appear again on the 2001 Capitol Visitor Center Commemorative Coins. Just a great design, and great mirrors on this perfect silver beauty.
1995-P Gymnastics S$1 9717 1995-P $1 PR70DC 60 0 820

1995-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Special Olympics { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2010) Mintage: 351,764 (proof) In 1995 the Special Olympics were held in Connecticut. The obverse features a profile of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, then the first living female depicted on US coinage. On the coin, she is credited as the founder of the Special Olympic Games, although some argue Anne Burke has this title and consider the coin inaccurate. The brilliant silver fields and heavily frosted devices are perfectly rendered.
1995-S Civil War S$1 9701 1995-S $1 PR70DC 181 0 1810
1995-S Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Civil War Battlefields { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2010) Mintage: 437,113 (proof) Commemorating 100 years of Civil War battlefields preservation.

Another top-pop runner-up with nice frosting and black fields. For twenty years this single dollar eluded most collectors seeking perfection. This highly reflective piece shows off multiply reflected devices in its flawless mirrors. The open area in the center of the obverse makes this piece so difficult to achieve perfection.

1998-S C. Attucks S$1 9770 1998-S $1 PR70DC 90 0 900

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).
1999-P Yellowstone S$1 99778 1999-P $1 PR70DC 89 0 890
1999-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Yellowstone { PCGS-3 } (Jan'2010) Mintage: 128,646 (proof) This commemorative was issued to mark the 175th anniversary of the park's establishment by Congress in 1872 (okay, so they're off by two years). Thought to be "Old Faithful", the geyser is not identified as such on the coin, and the landscape is different than it should be for this famous time-piece. The cameo and deep mirrors are perfect, even if the design falls a bit short.
2000-P Library S$1 99783 2000-P $1 PR70DC 132 0 1320
2000-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Library of Congress { PCGS-3 } (Mar'2009) Mintage: 196,900 (proof) To celebrate the 200th anniversary of its founding, this coin features two books, one is open with its spine resting on the other closed book. The torch of learning appears in the background. On the flip side, the dome of the Library of Congress Jefferson Building is featured. Reflective deep black mirrors highlight the frosted devices effectively.
2000-P Leif Ericson S$1 99785 2000-P $1 PR70DC 47 0 720
2000-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Leif Ericson { PCGS-3 } (Jul'2009) Mintage: 58,612 (proof) This rare top-pop piece issued by the United States Mint in cooperation with the Republic of Iceland, depicts Leif Ericson to mark the 1,000th anniversary of his discovery of the New World. On the reverse is a Viking ship with Leif Ericson at the helm. Phenomonal frosted devices and deeply reflective fields makes this a very show piece. A simple, but effective design, perhaps on the cartoonish side for US coinage, nonetheless, perfectly rendered.
2001-P Capitol Visitor Ctr S$1 99791 2001-P $1 PR70DC 92 0 920
2001-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Capitol Visitor Center { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 143,793 (proof) The obverse of the Capitol Visitor Center Silver Dollar presents an image of the original Capitol with the date "1800" and the later Capitol with the date "2001". The reverse shows a heraldic eagle with shield and rays emanating around. Another building rendered with photo-like perfection with heavy white frosting over black mirrors. The obverse is definitely more "coin-looking" than the clad half-dollar counterpart; but, the plain mostly lettering eagle-less reverse still leaves much to be desired.
2001-P Buffalo S$1 99793 2001-P $1 PR70DC 1587 0 15870
2001-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Buffalo { PCGS-3 } (Oct'2008) Mintage: 272,869 (proof) Taken from the 1913 Indian Head or Buffalo Nickel with some additional inscriptions added to the reverse, this piece is a very classic and popular US design that exudes perfection.
2002-P Salt Lake City Olympics S$1 99798 2002-P $1 PR70DC 89 0 890
2002-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Salt Lake City (Olympics) { PCGS-3 } (Feb'2009) Mintage: 142,873 (proof) The obverse of the coin features the crystal emblem of the 2002 XIX Olympic Winter Games against the "rhythm of the land" with the Olympic rings below. The reverse, designed by Donna Weaver, features the skyline of Salt Lake City with the Rocky Mountains in the background. The "rhythm of the land" appears in an arc above. Deep brilliant silver fields and snowy frosted devices grace this winter-themed top-pop gem.
2002-W West Point Bicentennial S$1 921000 2002-W $1 PR70DC 276 0 2760
2002-W Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: West Point { PCGS-3 } (Sep'2008) Mintage: 288,293 (proof) This commemorative features the Academy Color Guard in parade. The Cadet Chapel and Washington Hall are visible in the background of the scene. The reverse shows the West Point Bicentennial logo. Brilliant mirror-perfect reflective fields with highly frosted devices offer terrific eye appeal.
2003-P First Flight S$1 921002 2003-P $1 PR70DC 89 0 890

Some viewed Marshall staying in Washington as a demotion; but, he was promoted to General of the Army, the equivalent of Field Marshall. Later, Eisenhower would be also given this rank, just prior to the Battle of the Bulge. Marshall later gave his name to the plan to reconstruct Europe after the war, and Eisenhower went on to become president.
