Comments

The 1997 Jackie Robinson Silver Dollar was issued in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of his appearance in a major league baseball game as the first black player, with relatively lower mintages supporting higher secondary market premiums for the issue.

The Jackie Robinson Silver Dollar was available in uncirculated or proof version, or within two multi-coin sets packaged by the United States Mint. The coins were limited to a maximum authorized production of 200,000 across all options, which was the lowest authorized production for a modern silver commemorative coin. Two coin sets and four coin sets were offered, which included versions of the $1 silver coins. Surcharges added to the cost of the coins were paid to the Botanic Garden Foundation and the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
