    I've been a bad boy, LOL. You can't go wrong adding a silver dollar to your collection. Besides, that one is relatively scarce. According to PCGS, 351,764 proofs were made, with 250,000 going to a single corporate sponsor who gave them away. So how many of those survive in good shape? Enjoy, and go after one of those ugly double eagles next :)

    Eh, I bet you MOST of them still survive. I wouldn't call a mintage of 351,764 "scarce" by any definition myself. I see ones nowadays in the 35k mintage ranges.

    Sorry, but this coin is a pet peeve, We have a legal prohibition against living people on coins for a reason.

    Having said this, yeah, I would own one. :)

    I wouldn't buy for the portrait, I'd buy for the fact that the Special Olympics has instilled confidence in plenty with physical and emotional disabilities while also developing community in the regions where events take place.

    I think the point of the PCGS blurb was that only 101,764 were sold to collectors. The other 250,000 were given away to people who likely didn't have any interest in numismatics and treated them accordingly over the last 25 years. But, yeah, hardly "scarce".

    Yeah, that bugged me, too, at the time.

    Yeah me, too, but I'm easy.

    From your wife’s view, it’s a beautiful coin. From your point of view, it’s one of the ugliest US coins you ever seen. Just don’t tell her that. Lol

    Couldn't bring myself to buying that coin unless it was going for under melt, and even then I'd have to close my eyes when I opened it upon arrival.

    Not under melt but picked it up for 22, with others going about 30-50, I was happy with that lol

    I have to say that's about a tie with the SBA mug.

    My wife does not care what I buy for the collection as long as it is for our heirs, our two little terrorist granddaughters. If I say it's for me, I get, you don't need that! Next lifetime I'm going to be rich, good looking, and single. Can I get an amen...

    This isn't exactly on the same subject, but I met both Eunice and Maria at the shop I was working at in Aspen in 1975, my close brush with the Kennedy's.
