1986 Statue of Liberty Commemorative Silver Dollar

In this post will are going to look at a 1986 proof Liberty silver dollar from the San Fransisco mint as well as a copper liberty half dollar.  These commemorative US proof coins come in a nice blue collectors case, are slabbed in protective hard plastic casings and are viewable in the pictures below.

Now the dollar was struck with the traditional weight of 26.73 grams and a silver composition of 90% (.77 troy ounces of the precious metal).  On the front side is a take on the Statue of Liberty with the Ellis Island building in the background.   Also the year of production (1986) and “IN GOD WE TRUST”are struck on the obverse.  The reverse side of this coin has Liberty’s torch with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA struck above it and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and ONE DOLLAR at the bottom.  Directly under the torch is a poem.  The credit for this coin goes to John Mercanti with assistance on the reverse side from Matthew Peloso.  This is really a silver beauty that any collector can appreciate.

The half dollar is really nice as well, also a proof coin but made mostly of copper (with a very small amount of nickel).   Its total weight is 11.34 grams.  The front side has an image of the Statue of Liberty facing a rising sun (an artistic take on a new life of Liberty for many).  This design was done by Edgar Steever.  The reverse is an impression of newly arrived immigrants at Ellis Island that are on their way to New York.  It was done by Sherl Winter.
