Why add this Benjamin Franklin Scientist Proof Silver Dollar to your collection?

In 2006, the U.S. Mint issued two commemorative coins to honor the 300th birthday of one of the most important figures in United States history, Benjamin Franklin. Each coin pays homage to a specific period of Franklin's diverse life. Honoring Franklin as a Scientist, this Proof Silver Dollar was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 0.7736 Troy oz. of .90 fine silver, has a diameter of 38.1 mm, weighs 26.73g, with a final reported mintage of 142,000.

Franklin conducts a shocking experiment.

The obverse, designed by Norman E. Nemeth, depicts a young Benjamin Franklin conducting his famous scientific experiment with lightning, flying a kite with a key attached. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "1706-2006," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SCIENTIST." The reverse features a reproduction of Franklin's political cartoon of a partitioned snake and the caption "JOIN, or DIE" designed by Charles L. Vickers. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "ONE DOLLAR."
