While many figures in American history have become controversial in recent years, President Abraham Lincoln continues to be admired almost universally.

Part of a mintage of 325,000 pieces, this coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint form 26.73 g of .900 fine silver.

Powerful President Lincoln Design by Justin Kunz

Justin Kunz designed and Don Everhart II sculpted the obverse. It bears a portrait of President Abraham Lincoln at an angle. The admired figure looks off in the distances to the holder's right. The date, "2009," is inscribed to the right, while "LIBERTY" and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed along the rim.

On the reverse, an open wreath encircles the final 43 words of President Lincoln's most famous speech, the Gettysburg Address. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" arches over those words on the top half of the rim. A ribbon unfurls on the bottom half of the rim. On it are three inscriptions, the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," "A. LINCOLN," which is in script, and the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
