Issued over 25 years ago for the 50th anniversary of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, these 1991 U.S. commemorative Proofs honor a revered American landmark visited by over three million people each year. The 3-coin set contains a 90% gold $5 coin, a 90% silver dollar and a clad half dollar – all struck to the highest Proof standards and featuring frosted, high-relief images against gleaming mirror-like surfaces. The $5 gold piece depicts a bald eagle soaring above Mount Rushmore, while the silver dollar and half dollar bear similar views of the colossal sculpture.
Nicknamed America’s “Shrine of Democracy,” Mount Rushmore, in the Black Hills of South Dakota, features 60-foot-high sculpted images of four U.S. presidents. George Washington is depicted for his essential role in founding our nation, Thomas Jefferson for his Louisiana Purchase which doubled the size of the country, Teddy Roosevelt for his major conservation efforts and Abraham Lincoln for preserving the Union. This complete set of 1991 Mount Rushmore Proofs comes in a display box that showcases the gold, silver and clad issues.
