1991-S USO 50th Anniversary Commemorative Silver Dollar Proof


In 1991, the United Service Organization (USO) celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The nonprofit, non-government supported organization was established in 1941 to provide entertainment and lift the morale of members of the U.S. military, at home and abroad. In honor of the milestone, the U.S. Mint issued a commemorative silver dollar coin, the release of which coincided with a victory parade held for troops returning from operation Desert Storm.

This USO Commemorative Silver Dollar was struck at the Mint’s San Francisco branch in 1991.
The coin is crafted from 0.7736 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver.
The coin features a gleaming proof finish.
The 38.10 mm diameter silver dollar is perfectly graded.
Final mintage is reported to be 321,275 pieces.
Sensational Commemorative Design
Obverse: The obverse design is inspired by the flag of the USO, featuring a wind-blown pennant adorned with the logo of the USO, beneath the elegantly scripted words “50TH ANNIVERSARY.” The inscription “IN GOD WE TRUST” arcs above the image, with “LIBERTY” and “1991” curving below.

Reverse: An eagle is depicted on the reverse, with a USO banner held in its beak, while perched upon a globe which is partially framed by eleven stars. The inscriptions “FIFTY YEARS SERVICE” and “TO SERVICE PEOPLE” flank the image, with “E PLURIBUS UNUM” positioned across the center of the globe. Additional inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ONE DOLLAR” and the San Francisco Mint mark “S.”
