This tasteful silver coin commemorates the United States Botanic Garden, a living museum featuring flowers and plants. The venerated institution was established by the founding fathers and has been in continuous operation and open to the public since 1850. Shown on the obverse is the facade of the museum in Washington D.C. An elegant rose, the national flower, graces the reverse. The low 58,505 mintage of this Brilliant Uncirculated commemorative is less than one-third the production of the coin’s proof issue, making it a much more difficult find.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
