Issued in 1995, a portion of proceeds from the original sale of these 90% silver commemorative dollars went to help preserve Civil War battlefields for future generations to visit. The obverse of this San Francisco Mint Proof features one soldier offering a canteen to a wounded soldier. The Gettysburg landscape is on the reverse, with a quote from Joshua Chamberlain, who fought in the historic battle. Now that the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is here, this silver dollar – presented in a handsome display case – makes a timely gift for the history buff on your list.
