Why purchase this specially labeled silver dollar coin commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness?
Each year, the U.S. Mint issues commemorative coins honoring specific events, anniversaries or themes, with the intent to raise awareness and funds for associated charities or foundations. This silver dollar honors Breast Cancer awareness, its sale including a $10 surcharge which will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for the purpose of furthering research in the fields of prevention and cure of the disease. The 38.1 mm diameter coin is struck from 0.7736 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint; no more than 400,000 will be minted.
