Celebrate 500 Years of Exploration

This commemorative was struck by the Denver Mint to honor the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ arrival in the New World. The Mercanti-designed 1992-D Columbus Quincentenary Silver Dollar features explorer Christopher Columbus holding a scrolled map and a flag. The reverse depicts the Santa Maria and the U.S. space shuttle Discovery. Each is struck in 26.73 grams of 90% fine silver and is graded in stunning Mint State-69 (MS69) condition by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and includes Mercanti’s signature on the label. Only 51 of these signed MS69s exist in the world, and only 36 remain in our vault. Get yours before the rest of our supply sets sail!

Year of Issue 1992
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.
