# 823 - Modern American Silver Dollar Commemoratives - Part 38

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-eighth is the 1998-S PR70 DCAM "RFK".

"The 1998 Robert F. Kennedy Silver Dollar was issued to commemorate the life and work of Robert F. Kennedy, authorized under Public Law 103-328. The year of release for the coin took place on the 30th anniversary of his death. Surcharges added to the cost of each coin were intended to be used for the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial."

PCGS graded 1,626 1998-S "RFK", with 78 as PR70. 99,020 1998-S "RFK" were minted in San Francisco.

I bought this coin in 2015 for $296.00 and today's price is around $285.00. The issue price was $37.00.

The obverse of the coin features an image of Robert F. Kennedy designed by Thomas D. Rogers, Sr.

The reverse of the coin, designed by James Peed, includes the Seal of the Department of Justice and the Seal of the United States Senate. Robert F. Kennedy had served as the Attorney General and a New York Senator.
