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

Many collectors may be surprised to learn that the world's most valuable coin isn't gold or silver. It's not even platinum or palladium; it's copper. It was the one coin struck from copper to test America's inaugural Silver Dollar, which was issued in 1794. To mark the 225th anniversary of the first ever Silver Dollar, the Smithsonian institution authorized sets of gold, silver, and copper coins bearing its designs. Struck at Commonwealth Mint in England from 1 oz of .999 fine silver, this silver piece bears the Smithsonian Sun mint mark appears below the eagle on the reverse.

Exquisite Flowing Hair Liberty Design by Robert Scot

Both faces of this medal bear the designs of Robert Scot. On the obverse, he shows Liberty with flowing hair. The right-side effigy is based on Libertas Americana, a medal that was given to troops who fought alongside George Washington. Ben Franklin contributed to the design of that medal. Rim inscriptions on this piece read, "LIBERTY" and "1794-2019." They are joined on the rim by fifteen stars.

Scot's reverse depicts an eagle with its wings spread. It stands within a wreath of palm branches, which represent victory, and olive branches, symbols of peace. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" encircles the wreath along the rim.

Exquisite GEM Proof

This coin is in GEM Proof condition according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That means that it was well struck and has a full mirror surface.
