U.S. Modern Commemoratives: 1997 US Botanic Garden Silver Dollar

in LeoFinance9 days ago (edited)

Whenever I am presented the opportunity and the funds to do it, I collect U.S. Modern Commemorative Coins. Every commemorative coin is authorized under an Act of Congress.

The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. Silver coins have been issued corresponding to and equal in specifications of classic circulating silver dollars. I have a long way to go, but here are the ones I showed in the past:

American Buffalo Commemorative Silver Dollar

The U.S. Capitol Commemorative Silver Dollar

The P.O.W. Commemorative Silver Dollar

The Star Spangled Banner Commemorative Silver Dollar

Abraham Lincoln Commemorative Silver Dollar

Commemorative Peace Silver Dollar

Commemorative Morgan Silver Dollar


1997 U.S. Botanic Gardens Commemorative Silver Dollar, Proof







Characteristics-

Obverse design: The coin features a rendition of America's national flower - the rose - beneath a detailed rose garland.

Reverse design: The coin features a multi-arched French façade of the U.S. Botanic Garden.

Obverse Inscriptions: UNITED STATES BOTANIC GARDEN, 1820-1995, E PLURIBUS UNUM

Reverse Inscriptions: ONE DOLLAR, 1997, IN GOD WE TRUST, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Mint and Mint Mark: Philadelphia

Artist Information:

- Obverse Designer: Edgar Z. Steever

- Reverse Designer: William C. Cousins

The United States Botanic Garden is the oldest public garden that has continuously operated in the United States. This coin commemorates the United States Botanic Garden and was released on February 21, 1997 to honor the garden’s 165th anniversary.

Located in Washington, DC, it is a living museum of flowers and plants. During the late 18th century, George Washington had a dream of a national botanic garden and by 1820 President James Monroe signed legislation the creation of the U.S. Botanic Garden.


The U.S. Botanic Garden was formally placed under the jurisdiction of the Joint Committee on the Library of Congress in 1856 and has been administered through the Architect of the Capitol since 1934. The Architect of the Capitol has served as Acting Director of the U.S. Botanic Garden and is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the Garden and for any construction, changes or improvements made. - History of U.S. Botanic Gardens


Here is a visual tour of the U.S. Botanic Gardens from YouTube:

The national flower of the USA is the rose. The reverse of the coin shows a rose garland above a rose.

I have acquired two other commemorative coins which I will show sometime.

All photos, gif, and video were taken by me with my iPhone6, unless specified.

It would be really great if you could collect them all, bit by bit… I so understand the expensive part. I still have to start again collecting, but like I said before… first other things and our big move. It’s delayed again with 2 months. But we are patient 😊

It was getting late and I went to bed.
Just up again and enjoying a cappuccino ☕️
Good morning to you ☀️
Have a wonderful Saturday @silversaver888

Hello @ironshield !
I know... and I think I will buy their commemorative coin of this year,
National Purple Heart Hall of Honor Silver Dollar, because ...
guess what? I was designed by Headi Wastweet!

It is a very stately coin and done very nicely. I would love to go visit those gardens; I would hope there would be very old heirloom plants there to marvel over. Thanks for sharing sis !😘🤗💖🌸

Indeed! I would love to visit again. It has been so, so long since I last saw it.
And the coin is lovely.
Hugs and kisses, sis 😘🤗💖
