So Called Dollar - Colorado Rush to the Rockies Dollar, Official Medal, Air Force Academy

1959 CO, Silver 33.6mm, HK 542

High Grade SCD at NGC MS65 - Amazing Detail!


NGC Graded MS65. Great HK 542 currently tied as third finest (as of Aug-08).  For sale is a great so-called silver dollar that represents the official Medal of the Colorado: Rush to the Rockies Centennial.  Both the obverse and reverse has reflective slight blueish, and mostly silver color surfaces with no significant marks to note.  Overall the silver dollar has great fields and eye-appeal, a must that has to be considered in today's so-called dollar growing collections. I have provided several photos with different angles to show the details of the fields and colors.


  
 

The obverse has a covered wagon scene, and a small circle below containing a buffalo. It reads above: “Colorado / Rush to the Rockies Centennial, 1859 to 1959”. The reverse has the Seal of Academy, with 13 stars around. Below it reads: MCMLIX and above it reads: “United States of America, Air Force Academy”.



A very high grade So Called Dollar/Medal that will be hard to upgrade.

History and Significance

Colorado Rush to the Rockies Centennial

The Colorado Rush to the Rockies Centennial was done to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first mass settlement in the state following the discovery of gold in 1859 in Central City. The celebration included centennial celebrations of 19 cities including Denver and Colorado Springs.  Each town had events and offered distinct entertainment activities. Denver acted first; a Council was created for the Centennial Commemorative Authority in 1955. Similar Committees were established in most communities.

The celebration was officially dubbed "Rush to the Rockies" Celebration, a focal point was pioneer village erected in downtown Denver, complete with blacksmith shop, livery stable, saloon, sheriff’s office, etc. The highlight of entire year was the First Commencement and Official Dedication by President Eisenhower, June 3, of the new $136,000,000 U.S. Air Force Academy located against spectacular Rampart Range near Colorado Springs.

The official Medal was authorized by 86th Congress and was struck at Philadelphia Mint.
