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.

“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.
