1994 U.S. Capitol Bicentennial Silver Dollar Struck at the Denver Mint

The 1994-D Capitol Bicentennial Silver Dollar celebrates the 200th anniversary of the U.S. Capitol. The Capitol Building is the seat of the United States Congress, the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. This example was struck at the Denver Mint and grades near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). In addition, the coin's label is hand-signed by John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint and the designer of the coin's reverse.

The Silver Dollar is struck in 26.73 grams of 90% silver.

Mercanti's reverse shows a spread-winged eagle perched on a flag-draped stars and stripes shield topped by the motto "E Pluribus Unum." The obverse features the Capitol Building located in Washington D.C. Inscriptions read: "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "BICENTENNIAL OF UNITED STATES CAPITOL," and "1994." The Capitol Building serves as a meeting place for the Senate and the House of Representatives. It is also among the most architecturally impressive and symbolically important buildings in the world. Mercanti's signature is sealed in the PCGS holder to protect it and the coin's near-perfect MS69 forever.

Year of Issue 1994
Country United States
Composition Silver
Purity 0.9000
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.
Uncirculated
A state of preservation used to describe coins that never circulated in the channels of commerce, i.e. a coin without any wear from circulation.
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.

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.
