Why purchase this 2009-P Commemorative Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Silver Dollar?
Americans seem to be divided on almost everything, including history, but one of the few figures who is almost universally respected is President Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln guided the United States through the most turbulent period in its history, the Civil War. His legacy is a unified nation without slavery. In 2009, the US Mint struck this commemorative silver dollar to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth. Part of a mintage of 125,000 pieces, this coin was struck from .7734 oz of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint. It will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Powerful President Lincoln Design by Justin Kunz
The obverse design was created by Justin Kunz and sculpted by Don Everhart. It features a portrait of President Lincoln that extends to the edge. America's sixteenth President looks into the distance to the right of the holder. The date, "2009," is inscribed to the right. "LIBERTY" and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed along the rim.
Phebe Hemphill designed and sculpted the reverse. An open wreath encircles the last 43 words of the Gettysburg Address. A ribbon that unfurls along the bottom bears the inscriptions "ONE DOLLAR," "A. LINCOLN," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Arching over all of this is the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
