About Commemorative Silver Dollar
The Marines gather on the sands of Iwo Jima and struggle to raise the American flag in the midst of war. This iconic image is just one of many that appears on a commemorative silver dollar, a limited edition coin released by the United States Mint to celebrate a historical event. The design selections on these coins range from the signing of the Constitution to the Olympics in the city of Atlanta and beyond. These U.S. Commemorative silver dollars contain 90 percent silver for the most part, which increases their value for investment collectors. The discerning collector would prefer the ultra-cameo brilliance of the commemorative proof silver dollar coins that come with a mirrored surface. eBay lists commemorative silver dollars in hundreds of different versions, including even those rare and hard to find coins. Pay attention to the coin's condition, packaging, and any supporting Certificate of Authenticity documents in order to buy the best coins.
