Living Up To The Hype: 2023 Reverse Proof Morgan and Peace Dollars

by Unfrozen Caveman Law Writer

Just hook it to my veins

I try not to go overboard with commemorative coins — especially modern day ones. I’ve always been partial to the design and style of the pre-1954 commemoratives, so if I’m going to spend my money, it’ll be on one of those coins.

I was also skeptical of the whole “reverse proof” thing. When I first heard of it, it sounded like a gimmick — not unlike colorized coins or commemorative coins with curved surfaces, like the moon landing or Baseball Hall of Fame coins. The purist in me was offended beyond belief.

But then I saw how great reverse proof coins looked and changed my mind faster than Eddie Murphy after he turns down a role in a crappy movie but then sees how much money they’re offering him. I bought a 2006-P Silver Eagle and a 2018-S JFK half dollar with beautiful reverse proof finishes and they’ve been fantastic additions to my collection.

So when I heard they were going to release Morgan and Peace commemorative dollars (a series I’ve been a big fan of) with reverse proof finishes, I knew what I had to do.

I had to tell the U.S. Mint to just go ahead and take my money. And I did.
