About the Coin

The 2009 Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar commemorates the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille, inventor of the Braille system, which is used by the blind to read and write. Now, for the first time in history, a United States coin features readable Braille and is available in both proof and uncirculated versions. Surcharges from sales of the 2009 Louis Braille Bicentennial Silver Dollar are authorized to be paid to the National Federation of the Blind to further its Braille literacy programs. For more information about the NFB’s Braille literacy programs, please visit www.Braille.org.
