The obverse design of this coin was inspired by an original design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It features standing Liberty with a lamp and book in her right hand with the sun encircling the flame of the lamp.


The lamp symbolizes learning and discovery, and the sun symbolizes the light of knowledge. The 1996 National Community Service Silver Dollar was issued to honor the spirit of volunteerism in the United States.


The United States Mint at San Francisco does not currently produce circulating coins. It mints clad and silver proof coin sets and Commemorative coins as authorized by Congress.The San Francisco Mint is not open to the public.


The United States Modern Commemorative Coin program began in 1982. Silver coins have been issued corresponding to and equal in specifications of classic circulating silver dollars. I have a long way to go, but here are the ones I shown so far:

National Community Service Commemorative Silver Dollar
Jamestown Commemorative Silver Dollar
The US Botanic Garden Commemorative Silver Dollar
Commemorative Morgan Silver Dollar
Commemorative Peace Silver Dollar
Abraham Lincoln Commemorative Silver Dollar
The Star Spangled Banner Commemorative Silver Dollar
