Why add the 1986-S Statue of Liberty Centennial Commemorative Proof 2-Coin Set to your collection?

"Collect the only legal tender coins struck in honor of Liberty's 100th Birthday!" was the headline for this set back in 1986. The U.S. Mint struck this 1986-S Statue of Liberty Half Dollar and Silver Dollar Proof coin set. The silver dollar contains .7736 oz. ASW on a 90% silver planchet. The half dollar was only struck in the standard copper-nickel composition, which makes it the first non-silver commemorative half dollar ever struck!

Two spectacular designs

The obverse of the silver dollar was designed by John M. Mercanti. It features the Statue of Liberty. The reverse of the coin was designed by Mr. Mercanti and designer Matthew Peloso and features the image of the Torch of Freedom with rays emanating from it.

The half dollar obverse shows a ship entering New York Harbor. The New York skyline appears in the background with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground. The image was designed by Edgar Z. Steever IV. The reverse of the coin features immigrants looking across New York Harbor at America from the Ellis Island pier. The reverse was designed by Sherl Joseph Winter.

Proof coins for collectors

Proof coins are among the highest quality coins available. They are hotly pursued by collectors at all levels.
