Why should you purchase the 2016-P $1 Silver Mark Twain Commemorative?

This beautiful 2016 silver dollar coin was struck to commemorate the life and legacy of beloved American author Mark Twain. Minted in Philadelphia, this coin contains 90% silver, measures 38.1 mm, weighs 26.73 grams with a designation of GEM BU, in original mint packaging.

The silver coin's obverse design features a highly detailed portrait of Mark Twain holding a calabash style pipe. A silhouette of Huck Finn and Jim on a raft is etched into the smoke of his pipe in the background. Inscribed are the words "LIBERTY", "IN GOD WE TRUST", "2016" and “P”.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist credited with publishing twenty-eight books, as well as numerous letters, short stories and sketches. The reverse design of this exquisite silver dollar coin features images from several of Twain’s most cherished popular works. An array of colorful characters grace the coin as if released from the very pages of a book. Easily recognized are the knight and horse from A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, the energetic frog from The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and Jim and Huck from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn sitting upon the pages of the open book. The literary images are bordered by the inscriptions: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “$1” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
