John K. writes: Hey doc, My girlfriend has a coin minted in 1994 that says “women in military service memorial.” It has busts of 5 women and all the names of the services around the edge on the front. On the back it has a pic of some memorial building and it says one dollar on it. She recieved it from her grandfather who has passed on. Can you help me out with any info on it and it’s current market price? thanks.
The 1994 Women Veterans Silver Dollar is an official United States commemorative coin struck by the Philadelphia Mint. There are two types: Mint State and Proof (“S” mint mark). The value quote assumes that the coin is still in the original box and casing and contains the certificate that accompanied the coin from the U.S. Mint. Approximate value, Mint State or Proof: $30-$35.
