  • Description:

    After the American Civil War, the Library of Congress earned the right to two copies of every copyrighted work of books, illustrations, maps, etc. to be stored at the library. The librarian of Congress soon realized that the current library at the time would be too small. The Library of Congress soon moved to a larger building across the street from the Capitol building (today the two structures are accessible by a public tunnel crossing under the street). Today, the Library of Congress boasts to be the largest library in the world and holds research material from all over the world in over 450 languages.

    The obverse of the Uncirculated Library of Congress Commemorative Silver dollar shows an open book with illegible writing on it. Behind the book is the statue of the torch that rests at the top of the dome above the current Library of Congress. Along the edge of the top of the coin, the words “Library of Congress” are written, along with the dates “1800 2000”. The obverse was designed by Thomas D Rogers. The reverse of the coin is much more traditional. A likeness to the Library of Congress, including its dome and torch, are engraved on the reverse. The P mint mark can be seen at around 4 o’clock. The reverse was designed by veteran sculptor engraver John Mercanti.

    The 2000 Uncirculated Library of Congress Commemorative Silver dollar has a mintage of 53,264 coins. As the library was conceived in 1800, this coin commemorates the library’s 200th anniversary.
