The 2009 Abraham Lincoln Silver Dollar was issued to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the 16th President of the United States 1OZ COIN WITH 90% SILVER CONTENT
The 2009 Abraham Lincoln Silver Dollar was issued to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the 16th President of the United States.
The silver dollar obverse features a portrait of Abraham Lincoln designed by Justin Kunz and sculpted by Don Everhart. The portrait, which is symbolic of Lincoln’s strength and resolve, was inspired by Daniel Chester French’s sculpture which resides at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. The obverse inscriptions read “In God We Trust”, “Liberty”, and the date “2009”.
The reverse of the coin features the final 43 words of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address surrounded by a laurel wreath. The central inscription reads, “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this Nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” An inscription above reads “United States of America”, and lettering on banners below read “One Dollar” and “E Pluribus Unum” with a reproduction of Lincoln’s signature. The reverse was designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.
The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Silver Dollar went on sale February 12, 2009, to coincide with the exact 200th anniversary of his birth. Proof and uncirculated versions of the coin were produced at the Philadelphia Mint with an overall maximum production of 500,000 coins.
