# 789 - Modern American Silver Dollar Commemoratives - Part 21

in LeoFinance10 months ago

Due to the coronavirus, I am stuck at home and I cannot access part of my stack, where I have coins I have not posted about before.

So we will continue a series that I published almost two years ago, "The Modern American Silver Commemorative Dollars".

This will be a little different series, because the photos are new (I hope better than the old ones) and the text will be different (of course the basics are the same).

The info below comes mostly from: https://moderncommemoratives.com/

"The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. That year, the US Mint released commemorative half dollar coins to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Since that date, commemorative coins have been issued nearly every year to celebrate famous American people, places, events, and institutions.

Each commemorative coin program is authorized under an Act of Congress. The Act typically specifies the subject to be commemorated, the denomination of coins to be issued, and the maximum authorized mintage for each. Additionally, most commemorative coin programs include surcharges added to the cost of each coin, which will be distributed to specified beneficiary organizations or fund projects that benefit the community."

All coins weight 26.73g with 90% silver purity. They were issued in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

They will be presented in the order they were minted, but only one of each design. I will alternate the Proofs with the Brilliant Uncirculated.

The twenty-first is the 1994-W MS70 "Women in Military".

"The 1994 Women in Military Service Memorial Silver Dollar was issued for the construction of a new memorial complex for women in military service. This was one of three programs issued for military veteran themed memorials. The other programs were for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Prisoner of War Memorial."

PCGS graded 2,872 1994-W "Women in Military", with 427 as MS70. 53,069 1994-W "Women in Military" were minted in West Point.

I bought this coin in 2003 for $65.00 and today's price is around $75.00. The issue price was $32.00.

"The obverse of the coin features a profile view of servicewomen in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Both the obverse and reverse of the coin were designed by T. James Ferrell."

"The reverse features a view of the proposed Women in Military Service for America Memorial."

Hey there, here @lizanomadsoul from HiveBuzz Team 🙂

You're welcome @ronaldoavelino! Great job! You have my full respect, sooo many posts! Cheers to that 😉🙂

I will seek out this commemorative coin, because my Mom was in the military! Thanks for showing us this coin. It is my first time to see one.
Have a great Sunday, and take care, my friend @ronaldoavelino🥰🌺🤙

The price above is for a PCGS MS70. Unslabbed coins or those below MS70 are much cheaper (around $25).
