Korea Silver Dollar Hand-Signed by the Designer

This 1991 Denver Mint Korea Silver Dollar was struck to commemorate the Korean War Memorial in Washington D.C., and the 38th anniversary of the end of the conflict. It shows a map of a divided Korea and an eagle on the reverse. The obverse, designed by John Mercanti, the 12th chief engraver of the U.S. Mint, features an infantry man in full gear, ships and jet aircraft. Just over 210,000 were minted, and we’re pleased to offer a small number—only 176 now in stock—that are graded Mint State-69 (MS69) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). These also include Mr. Mercanti’s hand-signed autograph on the label, sonically sealed in an acrylic capsule to preserve its historic provenance forever.

Country United States
Composition Silver
Condition
Graded
Coins that are inspected, evaluated and graded by an independent, third party grading service. After a grade is assigned, each coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic "slab," preserving the coin's condition.
Grade
MS69
The second-highest grade a coin can obtain, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Mint State-69, otherwise known as MS69, means your almost-flawless coin showcases an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. With quality well above of the majority of coins in their respective series, many collectors prefer MS69-graded coins for their balance of collector status and affordability.

Mint Name
Denver - D
To meet the need for a United States Mint location in the heart of the West, the U.S. Government acquired the assay office and private mint of Clark, Gruber and Company for $25,000 in 1863. While a new assay office was immediately set up in its place, the new branch of the U.S. Mint wasn't in full operation until 1906. Initially responsible for minting $20 Double Eagles from Colorado gold, today the Denver Mint produces about 40 million coins a day -- a total of 8 billion coins a year.
