"On Great Fields Something Stays"

This Civil War Battlefields Silver Dollar was struck to commemorate battlefield preservation 100 years after the establishment of the Gettysburg National Military park in 1895. In 90% pure silver, the obverse features an injured soldier being given a drink of water from a canteen. The reverse offers a quote from General Joshua Chamberlain set against a bucolic Gettysburg landscape. Each is graded Proof-69 (PR69) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and contains a label hand-signed by the coin’s reverse designer, John Mercanti. Only 57 of these exist in the world in this condition. Order yours today!

Year of Issue 1995
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.
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.

Currency Type Dollar
Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
