U.S. Mt. Rushmore Half Dollar 1991-S Proof
|Item Number: 20667|
|Minted to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the beloved monument, a portion of the sales from this coin's proceeds helped finance $40 million of restoration work.
Known as the "Shrine of Democracy," Mount Rushmore is one of America's most popular tourist attractions and welcomes almost 2 million visitors a year.
The impressive engraving shows glorious sun rays behind a close up view of the massive mountain sculpture of presidents Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Lincoln. The monument's golden anniversary is noted on the reverse along with an image of an American Bison.
This handsome copper-nickel half dollar is minted in finest-quality proof form with deep-etched frosted engravings and mirror fields. Almost ten times as many earlier Statue of Liberty half dollar proofs were output compared to this Mount Rushmore half dollar proof.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not
always available in the original mint packaging.
