The 1995 Civil War Battlefields Silver Dollar was to commemorative 100 years of Civil War battlefields preservation. This is dated from the establishment of the Gettysburg National Military Park in 1895. The silver dollar commemorative was issued along with a $5 gold and clad half dollar coin to round out the program.

There was a maximum authorized mintage of 1 million coins, which was not met. The coins were sold individually, as multi coin sets with other Civil War Battlefields Commmoratives, and included in the annual Prestige Proof Set.
