Description
 
The Statue of Liberty
In 1986 the U.S. Mint issued a special 90% silver dollar to commemorate the 100th Anniversary. The obverse a full figure of the statue with Ellis Island in the Background ... the reverse ... the torch with the iconic words ... "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses Yearning to Breathe Free." Uniquely enough, this is the 1st coin in U.S. History to actually show the statue. Ours is the special mirrored Proof Edition struck at the San Francisco Mint ... Almost 30 years after its issue its stunning strike is such that you can still see yourself in the reflection.

The Constitution
The Statue of Liberty is a more visible symbol but the Constitution, the piece of paper that differentiates us as individual Americans from the rest of the world is the real McCoy. To mark the significance the U.S. Mint released a special 90% silver dollar in 1987 for the 200th Anniversary of its signing by out founding fathers. The obverse design ... the constitution in the background with a quill pen prominently imposed over it and the first three words ... "We the People" ... the reverse a cross section of Americans ... different periods of our history ... contrasting life styles. One side ... showing the strength of a nation bound by the words quill'd by a pen ... and the other Americans in mass to defend it. This is also a San Francisco Mint proof.
