1993 Bill of Rights Commemorative Uncirculated Silver Dollar
The Bill of Rights serves as a prevailing reminder of the freedoms all Americans enjoy. In 1993 Congress authorized the US Mint to create the Bill of Rights Commemorative Uncirculated Silver Dollar to commemorate the ratification of the Bill of Rights, and their principle author James Madison.
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 was designed by William Krawczewicz and features a detailed portrait of James Madison. The reverse, by Dean McMullen, depicts Madison’s home in Virginia, Montpelier. Interestingly, the 1993 Bill of Rights Commemorative Silver Dollar has no references to the Bill of Rights, only Madison.
Madison originally objected to a specific bill of rights being included in the Constitution. He thought it was unnecessary, since it purported to protect against powers that the federal government had not been granted. Political opponents though threatened to recall the entire Constitutional Convention, and undo all many hard won compromises, so Madison penned his amendments. By 1791, the last ten of the proposed amendments were ratified and became the Bill of Rights.
Minted in 1993 by the US Mint, this coin includes the original US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity. Purchase the 1993 Bill of Rights Commemorative Uncirculated Silver Dollar and add an incredible piece of history to your collection.
