Why buy this San Francisco Old Mint Commemorative Coin in Mint State 70 grade?
This commemorative one dollar coin was struck to celebrate the role that the Old Mint played in the forming of a great American City. The building design was approved for striking by President George W. Bush to honor the legacy of this wonderful building that ultimately came to be called the “Granite Lady.” In 2006, it marked the 100th year of the survival of the building through the 1906 earthquake & fire. This obverse design includes the inscriptions of: “LIBERTY,” E PLURIBUS UNUM,” 1906 ~ 2006,” OLD MINT,” “THE GRANITE LADY,” “INSTRUMENTAL IN SAN FRANCISCO RECOVERY.” The one dollar coin has .7734 troy oz. of silver and is a standard 38.1 mm in size.
The reverse design is considered to have been taken from the 1904-S Morgan Dollar.
