2016 150th Anniversary of the Transatlantic Cable Fine Silver Proof Set (TAX Exempt) 150180

On July 27, 1866, a new era of global communication began as S.S. Great Eastern steamed into Heart's Content, Newfoundland, to complete a link that could relay messages quickly between the Old World and the New. This fine silver proof dollar commemorates the 150th anniversary of that transatlantic telegraph cable, which revolutionized communications while transforming Newfoundland into an international hub.
