  • Description:

    Today, the United States Botanic Garden houses over 10,000 plants, many of which are over 100 years old! Based on the proximity of the Garden in relation to that of the United States Capitol building, one can assess that early administrations found horticulture and botany to be of huge importance to the success of the young republic. According to the US Botanic Garden, each plant is watered by hand daily and with the exception of a few rooms, none of the rooms are air conditioned. Climates are controlled in these rooms by mist, shades, and levered windows. For any tourist of the federal city, the US Botanic Garden is a must see.

    The obverse of the 1997 Uncirculated US Botanic Garden Commemorative Silver dollar depicts the facade of the Garden building. The structure rests above the “One Dollar” denomination of the coin. Also, the mint mark, P, is legible under the date, 1997. The obverse of the coin was designed by edgar Z Steever. The reverse of the coin shows America’s national flower, the rose. The rose is in bloom and curiously shows no thorns. The same cannot be said for the vine of roses that border the top half of the coin. At the bottom of the reverse of the coin the words “United States Botanic Garden 1820 - 1995” are written. The reverse was designed by William C Cousins.

    The 1997 Uncirculated US Botanic Garden Commemorative Silver dollar has a mintage of 58,505 coins. The coin was designed to commemorate the US Botanic Garden located in Washington, DC.
