The 2016 Mark Twain Silver Dollar Proof Coin; who doesn’t have fond memories of reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?
Samuel Langhorne Clemens, whose pen name was Mark Twain, has influenced American culture like few other authors; Twain published 28 books, as well as many short stories, letters and sketches. He is remembered for addressing complex social situations that were facing Americans during his time. His books have been translated into more than 75 languages, and many are still in print today.
This commemorative coin program is in recognition of Mark Twain’s literary and educational contributions.

The obverse (heads) features a portrait of Mark Twain holding a pipe with smoke forming a silhouette of Huck Finn and Jim on a raft in the background with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “LIBERTY” and”2016.” The reverse (tails) features an assortment of characters leaping to life from Mark Twain’s works: The knight and horse from A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, the frog from “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” and Jim and Huck from Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “$1” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

Baseball Hall of Fame - 1st Convex Coin

2014 Cassie McFarland Signature
Baseball Hall of Fame Silver Dollars!

California native Cassie McFarland was the winning designer in a contest that would decide the design of the first concave coin produced by the United States Mint. Competing against 15 other finalists, Cassie's innovative design modeled after her own baseball mitt inevitably won the judges over.  A graduate of the California Polytechnic State University, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, Studio Art and Design.  She currently resides in California where she is a full time figurative painter and photographer.
The 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame coins are a unique endeavor for the United States Mint. Convex on the reverse and concave on the obverse, this is the first coin of its design.
