The 1999 Yellowstone National Park Silver Dollar was issued to mark the 125th anniversary of the park’s establishment by Congress in 1872. The actual anniversary year occurred two years earlier. Surcharges added to the cost of each coin were used for the Yellowstone National Park and the National Park Foundation.

The Yellowstone Silver Dollars were produced at the Philadelphia Mint in proof and uncirculated formats. The coins were sold individually, or as a two coin set. Pricing initially reflected a pre-issue discount, after which point regular pricing went into effect. On a combined basis, the US Mint sold just over 50% of the maximum authorized mintage of 500,000 coins. The sales period was from July 16, 1999 to July 15, 2000.
