Colorized Silver Dollar Proof Honors The Duke

John Wayne wasn’t just a movie star; he was – and still is – a cultural Icon who symbolized American values and ideas. With a larger-than-life persona, “The Duke” was a top box office draw for three decades and was even awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom! Today, more than four decades after his passing, the name John Wayne still resonates with people everywhere. It’s no wonder that his appeal has extended to the realm of collectible coins with this rip-roarin’ release from Australia’s prestigious Perth Mint that depicts him in bold, vibrant color!

Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% silver, this $1 legal tender coin pictures John Wayne against a backdrop of the scenic landscape of Monument Valley, a cluster of vast sandstone buttes located on the Arizona-Utah border. It was there that he made several of his most popular films including Stagecoach (1939), Angel and the Badman (1947), Fort Apache (1948), She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949) and The Searchers (1956). In all, The Duke appeared in more than 160 films, was nominated for three Academy Awards and won the Best Actor Award for his role in 1969’s True Grit.

This coin also comes in gorgeous Proof condition, meaning it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. Plus, this coin release is officially licensed by John Wayne Enterprises and will come presented in a John Wayne-branded case inside a themed shipper and accompanied by a mint-issued Certificate of Authenticity.

This coin is the perfect tribute to John Wayne and will make a wonderful gift for any fan. Just 5,000 of these special coins will ever be struck, however, so don’t let them get away. Head one – or several – off at the past and straight into your cart today!
