United States Mint Commemorative Coins
1996 Smithsonian Silver Dollar
1996 Smithsonian 150th Anniversary Silver Dollar
The 1996 Smithsonian 150th Anniversary Silver Dollar was issued to commemorate the establishment of the Smithsonian Institution by Congress on August 10, 1846. As a point of interest to collectors, at the time of issue the Smithsonian held the National Numismatic Collection, which contains over one million items.
The 1996 Smithsonian Silver Dollar was offered in proof and uncirculated versions. The proof coins were minted in Philadelphia and the uncirculated coins were minted in Denver. Despite a high level of appreciation for the coin by collectors, sales were lack luster after recent years of commemorative coin over saturation. The US Mint offered the coins individually, within two-coin or four-coin sets, and as a Young Collectors Set containing the proof silver dollar. Initially coins were priced at a pre-issue discount, after which regular pricing went into effect. The extremely low mintage of the uncirculated version of the coin resulted in higher prices on the secondary market.
