COMMEMORATIVE COIN SETS

2013 5-STAR GENERAL COMMEMORATIVE COIN SET

Much of America’s powerful military success is in part to the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, established in 1881. This institution plays a pivotal role in the training and education of elite officers—including leadership development, battle management, and modern military procedures. This commemorative coin set honors the 132nd anniversary and the 5-star generals who either attended or taught there. 

2012 STAR SPANGLED BANNER COMMEMORATIVE COIN SET

This gorgeous coin set celebrates the writing of America’s national anthem, a song by Francis Scott King written in 1814 during the British war. In 1931, it became the official U.S. national anthem. The design theme is from the “Battle of Baltimore at Fort McHenry.” Lady Liberty proudly waves the 15 stars and 15 stripes star-spangled banner flag. Fort McHenry peeks through in the background. The reverse is a waving flag—America’s modern version today. 

US COMMEMORATIVE PROGRAMS

The U.S. Mint continues to produce exquisite and high-quality commemorative coins and medallions to honor people, places, and events in America. The U.S. Mint charges a surcharge for commemorative coins and medals to help maintain the historical sites, national monuments, build new museums, and more. Commemorative coins are legal tender but not intended for circulation, while medals hold no face value. Additionally, congress authorizes all commemorative coin programs. They decide the coin’s subject, denomination, max mintage limits, and what organization receives the surcharge profits. They are extremely desirable by collectors around the world. 

CLASSIC COMMEMORATIVE COINS

Early commemorative coins came from the years 1892-1954. There are around 144 different varieties of silver. They are affordable, yet scarce and therefore valuable. Experts say these coins will continue to go up in value over time, like many commemorative coins of today. The first early commemorative coin was issued in 1892 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus discovering America’s vast shores. 

MODERN COMMEMORATIVE COINS

In 1982, the U.S. Mint released its first commemorative coin since the 50s. This was partly to help reduce the U.S. debt load. Since then, the mint has managed to raise over $500 million towards the preservation of historical sites, national monuments, and museums.
