Customer demand will determine the ratio of proof to uncirculated coins minted within the authorized mintage limits. Pricing is as follows:
|Proof Silver Dollar||DM1||$46.95||$51.95|
|Uncirculated Silver Dollar||DM2||$43.95||$48.95|

Please visit the United States Mint website for more information on shipping options: catalog.usmint.gov/customer–service/shipping.html.
Sales prices include a $10 surcharge for each silver dollar sold, which is authorized to be paid to the Foundation to help finance research, education, and services aimed at improving the health of women, infants, and children.
The bureau will offer a special three–coin set later in the year consisting of a March of Dimes proof silver dollar and a proof silver dime, both minted at the United States Mint at West Point, and a reverse proof silver dime from the United States Mint at Philadelphia. The silver dimes are not available individually or in any other set.
A certificate of authenticity is included with all product options.
