• In 2006, the U.S. Mint released a commemorative Silver Dollar for the old San Francisco Mint.

• The coin features the classic 1878-1921 Morgan Silver Dollar design.

• The coin is the same size and silver purity (.900 silver) as a Morgan Silver Dollar.

• The San Francisco Mint opened in 1854, shortly after the start of California’s “Gold Rush.”

• Its purpose was to turn California’s gold into gold coins.

• The Mint also struck silver coins, including the Morgan Silver Dollar.

• The San Francisco Mint was built of granite and is known as the “Granite Lady.”

• It was one of the few buildings that remained standing in San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake.

• The 2006 San Francisco Mint commemorative Silver Dollar was issued for the 100th anniversary of the earthquake, as well as to honor the Mint’s place in U.S. coinage history.

• The coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint and features the “S” mint mark.

• The obverse of the Silver Dollar shows an image of the old San Francisco Mint.

• The reverse shows the 1904 Morgan Silver Dollar, designed by George T. Morgan. 

• This is the first time the U.S. Mint has used the Morgan Silver Dollar design since 1921.

• All coins are graded on a 70-point scale, with 70 being absolute perfection.

• This coin is one of the highest graded of all Old Mint Commemorative Silver Dollars.

• It is in near-perfect MS-68 condition.

• A coin of this quality has absolutely no visible flaws, so it looks perfect to the naked eye.

• The coin is independently graded by one of the most respected independent coin grading companies.

• The coin is encapsulated in a tamper-proof holder to protect its condition for the future.

• It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
