This 1996 Silver Dollar was struck to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Smithsonian Institution. It was established by an act of congress on August 10th, 1846, funded by a gift of gold sovereigns form Englishman John Smithson. The obverse shows the Smithsonian castle on the Mall in Washington DC. The reverse shows an allegorical goddess sitting on top of a globe. The incredibly small mintage of this commemorative Silver Dollar (only 31,320) makes it hard to find in the Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition offered here.
