Only 139 of these Mercanti-Signed USO Silver Dollars Exist

This 1991 Silver Dollar was struck at the Denver Mint, and honors the 50th anniversary of the United Services Organizations (USO). The group was founded in 1941 to supply social, recreational, welfare and spiritual support to armed services personnel. The reverse, designed by John Mercanti - the 12th chief engraver of the U.S. Mint - features an eagle atop a globe. Now, you can obtain this elusive Silver Dollar graded Mint State-69 (MS69) by Professional Coin Grading Service. In addition, each label is hand-signed by Mr. Mercanti and sealed with the coin in the holder. This unique double collectible can be yours. But hurry, only 139 exist!

Year of Issue 1991
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.
Pedigree
Mercanti Signed
Since 1792, there have ONLY been 12 official and prominent Chief Engravers of the U.S. Mint. This prestigious position is highly important as the Chief Engraver oversees the production of all coinage for circulation and for collectors. John Mercanti was the Chief Engraver from 2006 to 2010 but started at the Mint in 1974. John Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in United States Mint history (dating back to 1792). He designed the reverse of the Silver Eagle and the obverse of the Platinum Eagle that has been struck in proof condition annually since 1997. He designed quite a few modern gold and silver commemoratives in addition to five states in the States Quarter Program. As a testament to his legacy at the U.S. Mint, the coin's label prominently features his hand-signed signature.

Currency Type Dollar
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.
U.S. Mint
Created by the United States Congress through the Coinage Act of 1792, the United States Mint opened its first building in Philadelphia in 1793. Today, the U.S. Mint strikes circulating coins, as well as special collector coins and sets at the "Mother Mint" of Philadelphia and the branch mints of Denver, San Francisco and West Point.
