The proof edition, struck at the West Point Mint, has frosted design foregrounds and mirror-like backgrounds. The other collectible coin has an uncirculated finish and comes from the Philadelphia Mint. Each ships in a satin-lined presentation case within a U.S. Mint-branded box that also includes a certificate of authenticity.

Both silver dollars share designs emblematic of the mission and programs of the foundation, and its distinguished record of generating Americans’ support to protect our children’s health. Obverses or heads side represent the foundation’s past. They depict President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dr. Jonas Salk, two leaders in the fight against polio.

I like the uncirculated, it’s nice to see the surcharges going to a worthy cause.

I ordered two of each the first day. Now that I’ve seen pictures of the actual coins and not an artist’s rendering, I’m going to order 3 more sets.

The US Mint does it again!!!
Is it just me or is the reverse of this coin seemingly a classic design from yesteryear? The shucks harken to the old wheat ears cents, the log cabin, well, Lincoln designs of 2009, and the pump is almost torn from the 2010 Hot Springs design. The difference is that it is a new coin, and with all the differing finishes, it is a sure winner, whether vapor blast uncirculated, Proof Like bullion, or any combination thereof. This will sell out in both bullion and the collector’s edition, so get yours now.

Dear Sirs,
Can any of these sets be bought by U.K.residents please? Formerly a resident of Hong Kong I was able to purchase a number of issues, and these new ones would be a welcome addition to my collection.

Sincerely Norman Coney-Jones
