Why order this 1 oz Silver Proof 1794-2019 Smithsonian America's First Silver Dollar Medal?
Coin collectors spend the bulk of their time, money, and energy on gold and silver, but a copper coin is actually the world's most valuable. It is the single copper piece that was struck to test the dies of the 1794 Silver Dollar, America's first such coin. Housed in the Smithsonian, the coin has an estimated worth of over $20 million. The U.S Mint struck 1,758 silver dollars that year, with only about 130 surviving. Now, MCM is exclusively offering collectors the opportunity to own medals with these designs. This Silver Proof was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
Stunning Libertas Americana-Inspired Design by Robert Scot
Robert Scot's obverse features Liberty in right-side profile with flowing hair. The design was inspired by the 1781 Libertas Americana, a medal that was given to solders who fought alongside Gen. George Washington. "LIBERTY" is inscribed above the image, and "1794-2019" is inscribed below it. They are joined by fifteen stars.
Scot also designed the reverse, on which an eagle spreads its wings while perched within a wreath of olive and palm branches. The olive branches represent peace, while the palm branches represent victory. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" spreads throughout the rim, and the Smithsonian Sun mint mark features below the eagle
Flawless PF70 UC
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin its highest grade, Proof 70, thus indicating that it lacks even a single imperfection that is visible under 5x magnification. NGC also labeled the piece Ultra Cameo, a designation given to coins that bear particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields.
