Why buy this 1794-2019 Smithsonian 1 oz Silver Reverse Proof America's First Silver Dollar Medal?
The first American Silver Dollar was struck in 1794. One copper coin was struck as a test of the new die, and 1,758 silver coins were struck that first year. Today, just about 130 are known to still exist. This medal was struck with the authorization of the Smithsonian. It features a reverse proof strike with the original dollar's designs, making it perfect for any collector who appreciates American numismatic history. Struck at Commonwealth Mint from 1 oz of .999 fine silver, this reverse proof medal is part of a mintage of just 800 pieces. This medal will arrive in GEM Proof condition.
Stunning Liberty Design by Robert Scot
Liberty is depicted in right-side profile on the obverse. The design by Robert Scot shows her with long, flowing hair. "LIBERTY" is inscribed at the top, and the medal is duel dated, "1794-2019," at the bottom. The two inscriptions are connected by thirteen stars along the rim.
The reverse, which was also designed by Scot, features an eagle with its wings stretched outward. It is encircled by a wreath of palm and olive branches, which represent victory and peace, respectively. Along the rim is the inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
