2009 United States Mint Braille Education Set with Louis Braille Bicentennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar
For the first time in its history, the US Mint produced a collectible package with genuine Braille text. This United States Mint Braille Education Set features an uncirculated 2009 Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar coin, educational information and readable Braille.
The Louis Braille Bicentennial Uncirculated Silver Dollar honors the man who made it possible for the blind to read and write and commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille. Blind by the age of four, Braille invented his system of raised dots to learn more quickly, never knowing that his pioneering contributions would lead to independence and increased quality of life for millions.
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 coin was minted in 2009 by the US Mint. The entire set is in like new condition and includes the original US Mint packaging with certificate of authenticity. Own the 2009 United States Mint Braille Education Set and add an exquisitely unique keepsake to your collection.
