Description
 

The 2003 First Flight Silver Dollar is part of the series of the First Flight Centennial Commemorative Coin Program, which also included a clad half dollar and $10 gold coin. These three coins celebrated the centennial of the first powered, manned flight. This was the only commemorative coin program for the year. The proof and uncirculated versions were both struck at the Philadelphia Mint and offered for sale separately.

The obverse of the silver dollar features a portrait of brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright facing left. The similarly designed gold coin features their portraits facing front. The inscriptions on the coin include “Liberty”, “In God We Trust”, “1903″, “2003″, and “Orville & Wilbur Wright”. The obverse design is by T. James Ferrell.

The reverse features the Wright 1903 Flyer, in flight above the dunes at Kill Devil Hill. Above the Flyer is the inscription “One Dollar”, with “United States of America” and “E Pluribus Unum” appearing on the dunes below. The reverse was designed by Norman E. Nemeth.

This 2003 First Flight Silver Dollar Uncirculated coin is in its original government packaging from the US Mint, including the US Mint certificate of Authenticity.
