Why add this 2004 Thomas Edison Proof Silver Dollar to your collection?

In 2004, the U.S. Mint issued a silver dollar to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Thomas Edison's invention of the light bulb. Although Edison was responsible for the invention of many life-changing devices, such as the phonograph and the motion picture camera, his most significant contribution to daily life was the creation of the light bulb. The first successful public demonstration of the long-lasting electric incandescent light bulb occurred in 1879 in Menlo Park, New Jersey, earning Edison "The Wizard of Menlo Park" moniker.

  • This Proof 2004 Thomas Edison Commemorative Silver Dollar is a product of the Philadelphia Mint.
  • The coin contains 0.7736 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver.
  • Final reported mintage is 211,055.
