Chief Justice John Marshall Silver Dollar

Celebrating the 250th anniversary of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall’s birth, this silver dollar is the first U.S. coin to feature a member of the Supreme Court or the Supreme Court itself.

February, 1801 saw John Marshall sworn in as the fourth Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. He served 34 years, effecting changes and systems that are still in function today. While serving, Marshall unseated the court’s original English method of justices writing their own opinions on paper, and established the one majority voice that is still used today.

Marshall is also to be remembered for instituting the Judicial Review doctrine, the principle by which the Supreme Court judges and overturns an Act of Congress should it be found to not adhere to the U.S. Constitution. This integral concept became the backbone of our Constitutional law - and freedom - today.

Created by the U.S. Mint in 2005, this Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall commemorative silver dollar is an exquisite addition to any silver or historical coin collection, or a great memento of our country’s legislative history.
