Black Revolutionary War Patriots Silver Dollar

The Tribute 

The Black Revolutionary War Patriots Silver Dollar commemorates Black Revolutionary Patriots and the 275th anniversary of the birth of Crispus Attucks, the first patriot killed in the infamous Boston Massacre in 1770. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the coins will support the construction of the Black Patriots Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. near the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

About the Coin 

The obverse of the silver dollar, designed by Mint Sculptor/Engraver John Mercanti, is a portrait of Crispus Attucks. The reverse design, by artist Ed Dwight, depicting a Black Patriot family, is also the design of the sculpture for the Black Patriots Memorial, honoring not only the black soldiers who fought for freedom, but also the families who supported them.

Previously available are the Proof Silver Dollar, the Uncirculated Silver Dollar, and the Two-Coin Proof and Uncirculated Set. The Young Collector's Edition, limited to only 20,000 sets, includes the Uncirculated Silver Dollar in an entertaining, informative package. The Black Patriots Coin & Stamp Set, features the Proof Silver Dollar and four commemorative stamps honoring abolitionist Frederick Douglas, inventor Benjamin Banneker, soldier Salem Poor, and Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman.
