  • Description:

    The United States Capitol is the seat of the Legislative Branch in Washington, DC. At one point it was the very center of the federal district, and even today it forms the four quadrants of the city that define the street formation of the capital city. The building was completed in 1800, but as the United States grew, so the US Capitol needed to expand. The Capitol was first completed without the famous dome, this addition was constructed from 1855 and 1866. The building is designed to hold the two houses of Congress: the House of Representatives in the southern building and the Senate in the northern building. The building was constructed in neoclassical style as with many of the other buildings in the nation’s capital.

    The obverse of the 2001 Proof US Capitol Visitor Center Silver dollar shows the original Capitol building from 1800 in the forefront of the coin. The background shows the Capitol building as it is today. As construction for the Capitol Visitor Center began midway through 2000, this coin is dated for 2001. This obverse of the coin was designed by Marika Somogyi. The reverse of the coin shows John Mercanti’s modern interpretation of the US Double Eagle. Wrapped around the eagle is a ribbon with the inscription “US Capitol Visitor Center”.

    The 2001 Proof US Capitol Visitor Center Silver Commemorative dollar has a mintage of 143,793. This coin is designed to commemorate the opening of the visitor center which is located on the East front of the building and serves as a gathering point for tourists.
