In 1941, after 14 years in the making, the world’s greatest mountain carving on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota was finally completed. The colossal Black Hills sculpture, designed by Gutzon Borglum, depicts four U.S. presidents chosen for preserving and expanding the Union – Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. In 1991, the 50th anniversary of this treasured landmark known as the “Shrine of Democracy” was celebrated on limited-edition U.S. commemorative coins issued for one year only...
This exquisite 90% fine gold $5 coin, available in Proof condition, portrays America’s national symbol, the bald eagle, soaring above the revered mountain carving.
