2004 Thomas Alva Edison Commemorative Silver Dollar marks the 125th anniversary of Edison's invention of the light bulb.

Some of his more famous inventions include the phonograph, the motion picture camera and, of course, the first practical light-bulb as featured on the Thomas Edison Silver Dollar.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of the great inventor in his laboratory, holding an early experimental light bulb. The reverse has a rendering of Edison's 1879 light bulb, with rays emanating from it. The image is encircled above by the inscription "125th ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIGHT BULB"
