2015 United States Marshals Service 225 Anniversary

Coins | Longstrider

Well I was going through some of our coins the other day, something we all need to do from time to time, and I ran into my Marshals Service 225th Anniversary Silver Dollar. I hadn't put it up yet. It's from 2015. That's why I need to go through them more often. Anyway I purchased this one direct from the mint. I don't usually buy a lot of modern commemorative but I really liked the design on this one. Besides being a very nice design the coin celebrates the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service. The first federal law enforcement agency in the United States. I won't go into everything that is engraved on the coins as I believe one can read them from the photos. The obverse was designed by Richard masters and engraved by Charles Vickers. The reverse was designed by Frank Morris and designed by Joseph Menna. It's made with 90% silver in a proof finish. With a diameter of 38.10 mm and a weight of 26.73 grams it's a nice coin to remember the old west. It has a nice heft and feel good in the hand. It was minted in Philadelphia. There were only 500,000 minted across all options available. Thanks for looking and I look forward to your comments.

Here I have, for your enjoyment, a unique specimen of a 2 ounce silver coin. Specifically, it is a 2 dollars New Zealand, face value, of a Niue coin minted by the Mint of Poland in 2015. It is 99.999% silver. The finish is an antique type with real lava from the area and selective copper plating. It is 50.00 millimeters in diameter and has a very limited mintage of just 688 pieces. A lot of variables for one coin! I was lucky enough to receive this coin as a gift. My wife felt, as an Italian, I should own this piece of world history from my ancestral home! The coin comes in a beautiful wooden presentation box with a certificate of authenticity. The obverse side is convex struck in High-Relief is a depiction of the volcano itself. The reverse side is concave and includes a half sphere of lava material from the region. It is embedded in the center. I hope you enjoy this coin as much as I do. Thanks for looking and your comments!
