1959 Nevada Silver Centennial So-Called $1 Nevada. Virginia City. 1959 So-Called Dollar. HK-552A, Turner-1. Silver Centennial. Nickel. Plain Edge. Medal Turn. MS-64 NGC. Obv: depiction of State Seal within beaded circle, THE GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF NEVADA around. Rev: NEVADA SILVER CENTENNIAL 1*8*5*9-1*9*5*9 around, VIRGINIA CITY / NEVADA / JUNE 1959 at center. Highly lustrous steel gray with pleasing silver-blue highlights, and with the outright appearance of a silver example of the issue (HK-552). The strike is needle-sharp, and the eye appeal is impressive. Struck to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Comstock Lode, a fantastic silver, and to a lesser extent, gold, deposit that is said to have bankrolled the Union cause during the Civil War; the Lode was worth over one billion dollars over its existence, including $300 million in the first 20 years alone. The official medal was authorized by the 86th Congress, designed “by committee,” and struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
