2009 Louis Braille Bicentennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar

Commemorating the man who made it possible for the blind to read and write, the Louis Braille Bicentennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar immortalizes the 200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille. Blind by the age of four, Braille originally invented the system of raised dots that bears his name for Napoleon’s army, never knowing that it would change the lives of so many. 

The silver dollar, minted in 90% silver and containing 0.7734 Troy oz of silver, has a diameter of 38.1mm and a weight of 26.73 grams. The obverse, designed by Joel Iskowitz, features a portrait of Louis Braille. The reverse, by Susan Gamble, depicts a child reading a book in Braille and the word Braille (abbreviated Brl in Braille code) over the child. The word “INDEPENDENCE” is featured on a bookshelf behind the child, signifying the freedom so many without sight now enjoy thanks to Braille’s efforts. 

Minted in 2009 by the US Mint, this coin is in uncirculated condition and includes the original US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity. Own the 2009 Louis Braille Bicentennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar and add a wonderful piece of history to your collection.
