Make U.S. Mint commemorative coins & sets part of your collection and treasure a piece of America. Struck by the U.S. Mint, these special commemorative coins and sets celebrate some of the most cherished people, places, and events in American history. Give to a coin collector, patriot, history lover, military buff, or sports enthusiast as a timeless symbol of affiliation with America’s rich legacy.

U.S. Mint commemorative coins are certified legal tender, though not minted for general circulation. By a vote from the United States Congress, each coin is authorized for striking and release. All commemorative coins and sets are presented in their original U.S. Mint packaging along with a certificate of authenticity.

Designed with eye-catching artistry by elite U.S. Mint sculptors-engravers, every coin honors the country’s distinctive icons, moments, and achievements.

“Early Commemoratives,” as they are known, were struck by the U.S. Mint from 1892 to 1954. In 1982, the U.S. Mint re-introduced commemorative coins, or “Modern Commemoratives”, with the issue of the George Washington commemorative half dollar. U.S. Mint commemorative coins and sets are minted in limited quantity and can offer a high value to the owner because of their quality and investment demand.

Whether you’re looking to add to or complete a collection, or simply wish to enjoy a piece of American culture, own a U.S. Mint commemorative coin or set today.
