1995 Civil War Battlefields Silver Dollar

The 1995 Civil War Battlefields Silver Dollar was issued to commemorative 100 years of Civil War battlefields preservation. This is dated from the establishment of the Gettysburg National Military Park in 1895. Only 45,866 Mint State coins were minted at Philadelphia.

The obverse of the silver dollar features a soldier offering a canteen to another wounded soldier. This was designed by Don Troiani, an artist known for his depictions of battle scenes. The reverse features the Gettysburg landscape and a quote from Joshua Chamberlain, who fought in the battle. This was designed by U.S. Mint artist John Mercanti. The coin contains 26.73 grams of silver, and is the same size and weight as the Morgan Silver Dollar.

This example is graded by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and is in Mint State-69 condition. In addition, the coin's label is hand signed by Mr. Mercanti and sealed with the coin in its holder, making this a unique double collectible of a coin and the designer's signature.

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
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.
