Why add this flawless Gold Commemorative coin struck in 2001 honoring the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center to your collection?
This Capitol Visitor Center commemorative coin was issued by the U.S. Mint in 2001 in celebration of the proposed Capitol Visitor Center in Washington D.C., and as a means to offset some of the construction costs for the new complex. The 21.6 mm diameter bullion coin, struck from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the West Point Mint, has a final reported mintage of 6,761. Surcharges collected in the sale of the coin directly benefited construction of the visitor center.
