  • Description:

    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has been the residence of the president of the United States since John Adams in 1800. At that time it would be largely recognizable to the large complex that is the White House today. The second resident of the White House, Thomas Jefferson, as many presidents would do after him, added to the executive mansion. Soon after its construction, the White House was burned down by the British during the War of 1812 and President Madison had to move the president’s residence for a short period. The White House was quickly reconstructed soon after the war. Since that time, the White House has been built onto by future presidents and designed and redesigned by many First Ladies.

    The obverse of the 1992 Proof White House 200th Anniversary silver dollar shows the North portico of the White House. The American flag, which is flying at full staff, is flanked by the date construction of the building began in 1792 and 1992. Around 4 o’clock, one can see a small W mint mark showing that the proof coins were struck at West Point. The obverse was designed by Edgar Z. Steever IV. The reverse of the coin depicts the architect of the White House James Hoban.To his right beyond his profile, one can see the main entrance to the White House which he designed. The reverse of the coin was designed by Chester Martin.

    The 1992 Proof White House 200th Anniversary Silver dollar has a mintage of 375,851 coins. The dollar was issued to commemorate one of America’s most iconic buildings. If you have any questions regarding this or any commemorative coin, please call our knowledgeable staff at (800) 735-1311.
