Why buy this 1 oz Silver Proof 1794-2019 Smithsonian America's First Silver Dollar Medal?

Gold and silver dominate modern coin markets, but one of the world's most valuable coins is copper. Just one copper piece was struck to test the dies of America's first silver dollar, and today that piece is estimated to be worth over $20 million. 1,758 silver dollars were struck from the 1794 dies, but just about 130 survive, which makes them extremely valuable as well. The Smithsonian, which owns the copper piece, authorized the production of gold, silver, and copper pieces that bear that original design. All three are available exclusively from MCM. This medal is struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver at England's Commonwealth Mint. It will arrive in GEM Proof condition.

Magnificent Flowing Hair Liberty Design by Robert Scot

Robert Scot created the designs for both faces of the country's first dollar, which are recreated here. He modeled his obverse, which depicts Liberty in right-side profile with flowing hair, was inspired by Libertas Americana, a medal that Ben Frankin helped to design. The medal was given to soldiers who fought for freedom with General George Washington. This medal also bears the word "LIBERTY' and the anniversary years, "1794-2019," along the rim. They are joined by fifteen stars.

Scot's reverse design features an eagle inside a wreath of palm and olive branches. The former represent victory, while the latter represent peace. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" arcs around the rim, and the Smithsonian Sun mint mark is included at the bottom.
