This is a MASSIVE hunk of silver! You have to see it to believe it.
October of 2003 marked the fifth anniversary of operation and there were three new sizes of Liberty Dollars introduced as fifth anniversary commemoratives. The first one was the massive, 5 ounce Liberty Dollar (highest known sale price $550 on 4/15/2011 for the $50 piece and $600 on 4/1/2011 for the $100 piece) with the preamble to the constitution micro-engraved around the rim of the obverse. This commemorative was limited to a mintage of 5000 pieces, but less than 4000 were distributed before the FBI raid on Wednesday, November 14th, 2007. The pieces held in inventory at the Evansville National Fullfillment Center were siezed along with the dies at the Sunshine mint in Idaho, so it is unlikely that the 5000 piece limit will ever be reached.
"ALL MEN AND WOMEN ARE CREATED EQUAL THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS AND WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT AND TO INSTITUTE A NEW GOVERNMENT."
The US dime is shown for size comparison.
