The 1992 White House Silver Dollar was released to mark the 200th anniversary of the White House. The cornerstone for the structure was originally placed on October 13, 1792. The building became the official presidential residence on November 1, 1800.
The obverse of the coin displays a view of the north portico of the White House. Inscriptions include “The White House”, the bicentennial dates “1792” and “1992”, “In God We Trust”, and “Liberty”. The obverse was designed by Edgar Z. Steever IV.
On the reverse of the coin is the bust of James Hoban, the architect of the White House. He stands before the original main entrance of the building. Inscriptions read “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, “One Dollar”, and “James Hoban”. The reverse was designed by Chester Y. Martin.
The Silver Proof White House coins were struck at the West Point Mint. The coin is housed in a plastic capsule. This coin is proof quality, which means it meets the finest standards in the industry for both beauty and craftsmanship, carefully designed to represent the best possible versions of the original model.
