Why buy this Exclusive Commemorative 1989-1993 George and Barbara Bush 1 oz Silver Proof Medal?
In 2018, Americans lost one of their most beloved couples as Barbara and George H.W. Bush passed away just seven months apart, after being married for more than seven decades. The President was known for his service under President Ronald Reagan, as well as his leadership of a global coalition to remove Iraqi forces from Kuwait after their 1990 invasion of the Gulf nation. His wife Barbara was known for her work on literacy, especially adult literacy. Now, the Commonwealth Mint is honoring the couple with a pair of silver medals. Part of a mintage of just 2,500 pieces, this medal was struck from one ounce of .999 fine silver and is an exclusive product to Modern Coin Mart.
Moving George and Barbara Bush Design by Numismatic Giant Don Everhart
Don Everhart, the former U.S Mint Lead Sculptor who has over forty years of experience, both designed and sculpted this touching Medal for the Commonwealth Mint. The obverse features an endearing image of the couple looking off to the right of the holder. They are both smiling warmly in an image that captures both their optimism and their love for each other. Their names, "GEORGE H. W. BUSH AND BARBARA BUSH," are inscribed along the rim.
On the reverse is a plaque that George Bush kept in his office. It reads, "CAVU CEILING AND VISIBILITY UNLIMITED." The expression is a reference to the weather conditions that Bush wanted as a pilot while flying from carriers during World War II. He referenced it in a letter to his children, saying that those were the conditions that he looked forward to for the rest of his life, thanks to their love. The White House is above the plaque, while a ribbon at the bottom offers the years of his presidency, "1989-1993."
Perfect PF70 UCl
This coin is in perfect condition even as seen under 5x magnification according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who awarded the piece their highest grade, Proof 70. It also bears particularly sharp contrasts between deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted device, as evidenced by its Ultra Cameo certification. This Medal will be accompanied by a story card that was signed by its Creator and Sculptor, Don Everhart.
