Comments

The 1994 U.S. Prisoner of War Museum Silver Dollars were minted in proof version at the Philadelphia Mint and uncirculated version at the West Point Mint. The coins were offered for sale individually or as included within three-coin proof or uncirculated sets which contained the three “Memorial” themed commemorative coins. The coins had a relatively low mintage due to low interest during the initial offering period. As a result, these coins now carry a premium, particularly for the lower mintage uncirculated version.
