# 819 - Modern American Silver Dollar Commemoratives - Part 36

Due to the coronavirus, I am stuck at home and I cannot access part of my stack, where I have coins I have not posted about before.

So we will continue a series that I published almost two years ago, "The Modern American Silver Commemorative Dollars".

This will be a little different series, because the photos are new (I hope better than the old ones) and the text will be different (of course the basics are the same).

The info below comes mostly from: https://moderncommemoratives.com/

"The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. That year, the US Mint released commemorative half dollar coins to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of George Washington. Since that date, commemorative coins have been issued nearly every year to celebrate famous American people, places, events, and institutions.

Each commemorative coin program is authorized under an Act of Congress. The Act typically specifies the subject to be commemorated, the denomination of coins to be issued, and the maximum authorized mintage for each. Additionally, most commemorative coin programs include surcharges added to the cost of each coin, which will be distributed to specified beneficiary organizations or fund projects that benefit the community."

All coins weight 26.73g with 90% silver purity. They were issued in Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

They will be presented in the order they were minted, but only one of each design. I will alternate the Proofs with the Brilliant Uncirculated.

The thirty-sixth is the 1997-S PR70 DCAM "Jackie Robinson".

"The 1997 Jackie Robinson Silver Dollar was issued in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of his appearance in a major league baseball game as the first black player. Surcharges added to the cost of the coins were paid to the Botanic Garden Foundation and the Jackie Robinson Foundation."

PCGS graded 2,440 1997-S "Jackie Robinson", with 142 as PR70 DCAM. 110,002 1997-S "Jackie Robinson" were minted in San Francisco.

I bought this coin in 2015 for $355.00 and today's price is around $350.00. The issue price was $37.00.

"The obverse of the silver dollar portrays Jackie Robinson sliding into home plate. This recalls when he stole home plate in a 1955 World Series game.

It was designed by Alfred Maletsky."


"The reverse of the coin displays the logo of the Jackie Robinson Foundation.

It was designed by T. James Ferrell."

    When I was a kid growing up, I was a fan of the 'Big Red Machine' as I grew up in Cincinnati. Even in school, if you got straight A's, you would be rewarded with tickets to the games. I was one of those kids, lol! This coin brings back those memories. Thanks for taking me back @ronaldoavelino!
