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!
Fully struck and lustrous with rich toning and no noticeable marks. A beautiful blend of olive-green, lime, gold, and a touch of rose-red makes this a thrilling coin for collectors that admire original color.
CAC. Both obverse and reverse sport an inner core of blended white luster and amber accent. An outer ring further blends in a lovely violet-blue and sea-green hue. Great eye appeal.
Splendid brilliant white semi proof-like surfaces. An outer band of gold, green, and blue accent enriches the reverse. Seldom seen this nice and is quite eye appealing.
Beautiful vibrant white luster with a very faint champagne tint. The surfaces are amazingly clean with minimal well hidden marks and a sharp strike. Even 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.
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.
Rich creamy white luster with wonderful eye appeal. A tough issue in any grade.
