The progress and history of the people in the new world are presented on the commemorative coins of the United States. The minting and collecting of commemorative coins goes all the way back to early Greece.
The Early U.S. Silver Commemorative series covers the various commemorative half dollars, the Lafayette Dollar, and the Isabella Quarter – all made from 1892 to 1954.
An Early Silver Commemorative set is extremely interesting and although a few rarities exist, the bulk of the collection is incredibly inexpensive!
CAC. Vibrant luster with a frosty champagne-white core surrounded by delicate iridescent orange-gold and turquoise toning.
CAC. Flashy mint luster with a faint golden hue on the obverse and light olive-green on the reverse. A gorgeous example of our nation's only quarter denomination commemorative.
CAC. Outstanding for the grade with a satiny white core framed by a touch of light gold peripheral toning.
Splendid brilliant white semi proof-like surfaces. An outer band of gold, green, and blue enriches the reverse. Seldom seen this nice and with this much eye appeal!
Vibrant cream-white luster and a sharp strike with minimal marks. Nearly a Gem and a tough coin to find with white surfaces.
Beautiful vibrant white luster with a very faint champagne tint. The surfaces are amazingly clean with minimal well hidden marks and a sharp strike. Most high grade certified 'Lafayettes' tend to be dark. This bright Gem is a memorable example with wonderful eye appeal.
An amazing example of the only dollar denomination commemorative until modern commemoratives began in the 1980's. This coin displays vibrant crisp white luster unlike what we've ever seen on a Lafayette in this high of grade. The strike is very sharp and the satiny surfaces are devoid of significant marks. A rare opportunity to acquire a crisp white example of this scarce coin that almost always exhibits heavy toning.
Well struck and nearly mark-free. The surfaces display rich brilliant luster with just a hint of gold.
Crisp white luster and a sharp strike.
Just over 50,000 coins minted but it is estimated that less than 5,000 coins sold to collectors and the rest were dumped into circulation. Nice coins are scarce and a Superb Gem, like we have here, is truly rare. This example is gorgeous with beautiful original surfaces that show vibrant, brilliant mint luster with a touch of toning mainly at the rim. The strike is even and sharp on both sides and there are simply no significant marks. A great Maine, waiting to take its place in a top flight collection.
