Comments

The 1991 Mount Rushmore Silver Dollar was issued for the golden anniversary of the national monument. Under the same program, half dollars and $5 gold coins were also issued. Surcharges raised from the commemorative coin program went to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial Society and the US Treasury.

A maximum mintage of 2,500,000 was established for the Mount Rushmore Silver Dollar. The coins were available in proof version struck at the San Francisco Mint or uncirculated version struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The US Mint offered the coins for sale individually or as part of various sets incorporating the half dollar and $5 gold coins. Pre-issue discounts were available for a specified period.
