Korea Silver Dollar Hand-Signed by the Designer

This 1991 Philadelphia 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. Each is struck in 26.73 grams of 90% fine silver and 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 infantryman in full gear, ships and jet aircraft. Just 618,488 were minted, and we’re pleased to offer a small number—only 19 now in stock—that are graded Proof-69 Deep Cameo (PR69DCAM) 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.
Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition. Proof coins are struck on specially-made planchets using polished dies. Proof coins are minted primarily for collectors and are not released for general circulation.
Grade
PR69DCAM
The second-highest grade a proof can obtain, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Proof-69 Deep Cameo, otherwise known as PR69DCAM, means your almost-flawless proof showcases an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections. With quality well above of the majority of proofs in their respective series, many collectors prefer PR69DCAM-graded proofs for their balance of collector status and affordability.
