It was 225 years ago on October 13, 1792 that a group of Freemasons met in the newly-established U.S. capital city of Washington, D.C. to lay the cornerstone for the Executive Mansion – home of America’s president! The location was chosen with help from first president George Washington, but the “White House” was not ready for occupancy until 8 years later during the tenure of John Adams.
Recall the laying of the White House cornerstone with this 90% silver dollar Proof struck in 1992 for the 200th anniversary at the West Point Mint. The obverse features the north portico, while the reverse depicts James Hoban, White House architect, and the original entrance door. Each Proof comes in a handsome display case with an illustrated history card. Get this prized U.S. commemorative silver dollar Proof today.
