1992 THE COLUMBUS QUINCENTENARY SILVER PROOF
“In 1492, Columbus Sailed The Ocean Blue!” We all learned this little ditty in elementary school, but without his brave and epic journey, our country would still be just a wild frontier. Minted in 90% silver and containing 0.7734 Troy oz of silver, the 1992 Columbus Quincentenary Silver Dollar Proof commemorates Columbus and his crew’s harrowing voyage across the Atlantic and discovery of our land five hundred years before. The Silver Dollar Proof comes in its original US Mint packaging and is available in like new condition.
A fine addition to any size collection, the Silver Dollar features Christopher Columbus standing tall with a flag in his right hand and a globe to his left. His famous ships, the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria are sailing in the background. The reverse features a split view of a Spanish Galleon and a modern space shuttle.
This coin is proof quality which means it meets the highest standards in the industry for craftsmanship. Proof coins are carefully produced to represent the best possible version of the original models. The 1992 Columbus Quincentenary Silver Dollar Proof is an undeniably worthwhile addition to your collection.
