Why add this 2006-P $1 Proof Silver Franklin Founding Father Commemorative Graded as PF70 UC by NGC to Your Collection?

This 2006-P Franklin Founding Father Dollar will be special to avid coin collectors because Benjamin Franklin was well known for practicing and advocating responsible stewardship of money. It is fitting, then, that the three hundredth anniversary of his birth would be celebrated with a coin minted in his honor. This coin consists of .77344 Troy oz. of constitutional silver. On the obverse, Franklin is depicted facing to the right of the holder. His image, which includes his shoulders, rises from the bottom of the coin, and his long hair partially covers his ear. On the bottom is an oval that bears his signature. On the right are the years of his birth and the year of the coin, “1706 – 2006,” along with the national motto and the “P” Mint mark, which indicates that the coin was minted in Philadelphia, where Franklin spent most of his life. The inscription “BENJAMIN FRANKLIN TERCENTENARY” arches along the rim from left to right, and “LIBERTY” is inscribed on the right. The obverse features a design adapted from the Fugio cent, America’s first coin, which Franklin himself designed. The inscription “MIND YOUR BUSINESS” is also taken from that coin. Other inscriptions follow along and inside the rim.
