Why add this 2006 San Francisco Old Mint Silver Dollar to your collection?

The U.S. Mint issued this silver dollar in 2006 to memorialize the 100th Anniversary of the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the role the city's minting facility played in its recovery. Nicknamed the "Granite Lady," the Old Mint was one of the few buildings still standing after the earthquake, providing much needed shelter for many of the city's displaced residents. This 38.1 mm diameter coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint from 0.7736 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, its final mintage reported to be 67,100.

Magnificent Commemorative Design

The obverse illustrates a perspective view the Old San Francisco Mint from the front left front corner, as originally designed for a commemorative medal by Sheryl J. Winter. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1906-2006" and "OLD MINT THE GRANITE LADY."

The reverse, created by Joseph Menna, features a revival of the eagle design from the Morgan Dollar, which was struck at the San Francisco Mint every year the silver dollar was issued from 1878-1921. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "ONE DOLLAR" and San Francisco's Mint mark "S."

Breathtaking Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

This 2006 Silver Dollar struck in honor of the Old San Francisco Mint is presented in beautiful, Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. The ungraded coin is superbly struck, with gorgeously detailed design elements and spectacular eye appeal.
