This impressive issue was minted in honor of the 200th anniversary of Congress, which first convened in 1789. The silver dollar commemorative shows the Statue of Freedom that stands atop the Capitol dome with clouds and sun rays in the background. On the reverse is an engraving of the Mace of the House of Representatives. One of the oldest symbols of the U.S. government, the mace is used by the Sergeant at Arms in carrying out the duties of the office. Finest quality proof minting featuring deep-struck frosted engravings and mirror fields.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
