This article presents photos of World War I Centennial Silver Dollars, the U.S. Mint collector coins commemorating the 100th anniversary of America’s involvement in the First World War.
Released on Jan. 17, the collectibles are produced at the Philadelphia Mint in finishes of proof and uncirculated.
Proof coins have frosted designs that contrast attractively against mirror-like backgrounds. They are almost aways more sought than uncirculated coins which have a brilliant but more standard appearance. The following sets of photos show both coin types. In the first photo, a proof WWI Silver Dollar is to the left. You can see its mirrored qualities reflects the red, white and blue colors from its presentation case.
Both dollars ship in similar commemorative packaging. They arrive boxed, are held in a black-velvet presentation case, and are accompanied by a U.S. Mint Certificate of Authenticity.
Available at discounted introductory prices until 3:00 p.m. ET on Feb. 20, with the proof $51.95 and the uncirculated $48.95, place orders using the U.S. Mint’s online commemorative page. Regular prices are $5 higher.
WWI Silver Medals
Honoring the Army, the Navy, the Air Service, the Marines and the Coast Guard, five companion WWI silver medals are sold alongside the silver dollars. Each of the five medals is sold in a set with a proof WWI Silver Dollar. The medals/sets go off-sale after 3:00 p.m. ET on Feb. 20.
