Commemoratives

Silver Modern Commemoratives date back to the 1982 issue of a silver half dollar in commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of George Washington's birth. It was the first 90% pure silver coin minted by the United States Mint since 1964 when the last of the 90% silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars were minted, and was the first US commemorative issue since 1954 (George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington).

Since that time dozens of Silver Modern Commemoratives have been issued commemorating subjects such as Olympic games, Mount Rushmore, Girl Scouts, and military generals. These coins provide a wealth of knowledge and education for their collectors, and provide a modest collecting challenge in some grades. They have been struck in both proof and mint state, with the chief difference between the two being the method in which they are struck. Proof coins usually have a very shiny negative area (the field) and frosty devices (the details). Mint state coins are struck with dies exhibiting the same surface as the coins we spend - lustrous throughout.
