This Silver coin was issued for the 50th anniversary of the completion of Mount Rushmore. The monument was originally conceived to promote tourism in the Black Hills region of South Dakota. Construction began in 1927 and the faces of the four presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, were completed in 1939. Construction of the entire monument ended in 1941 due to a lack of funding.
The obverse of this coin contains a view of Mount Rushmore, featuring the busts of the four presidents. The reverse shows the Great Seal of the United States with a sunburst and the outline of America in the background. This example has been graded as Mint State 70 by NGC!
