Here's the 2002 US silver dollar struck to commemorate the bicentennial of the US Military Academy at West Point, NY.

The coin's obverse presents a cadet color guard in parade with the Military Academy's Washington Hall and Cadet Chapel in the background. The design is the work of US Mint Sculptor-Engraver James Ferrell; US Mint Sculptor-Engraver John Mercanti was responsible for the reverse (a depiction of the Academy's bicentennial logo). (Note: Mercanti worked on the coin before becoming the Mint's 12th Chief Sculptor-Engraver on May 19, 2006.)

Here's one from my collection of commemorative silver dollars of Canada - the 1984 Toronto Sesquicentennial coin. The dollar was designed by D.J. Craig and engraved/modeled by Walter Ott.



In 2018, the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association ( RCNA) held its annual Convention in Toronto and had 50 of the Toronto dollars slabbed with a special label. I purchased one to support the organization. (I'm a Life Member!)



Here's a terrific view of the city at sunset. Somewhat similar to the scene depicted on the coin - though with additions to the skyline since 1984! I've enjoyed my visits to the city!

In 1997, the US Mint struck a commemorative coin for the US Botanic Garden and its 175th anniversary. The coin was available in proof and uncirculated versions, and also as part of a limited edition "Coinage and Currency Set."
