About 1900 Lafayette Silver Commemoratives

The only silver dollar among the classic United States commemoratives struck from 1892 through 1954, the 1900 Lafayette dollar was spearheaded by the Lafayette Memorial Commission to help raise funds for a statue of General Lafayette in Paris. General Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette brought French troops to help fight in and support the Revolutionary War in America. He is profiled in a jugate portrait with George Washington, making this the first official legal tender United States coin to profile the likeness of a former president.

The coins, credited to sculptor-engraver Charles Barber, were sold by the Memorial Commission for $2 each, though only 36,026 from a total authorized mintage of 50,000 pieces. This coin is frequently encountered in grades of AU50 through MS65, though higher-graded examples are quite scarce.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
