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. Issued in conjunction with the 1915 Panama-Pacific Expo. held in San Francisco. 200,000 were authorized by Congress but only 60,030 were struck and just 27,134 were actually issued. The rest were melted. This example is truly magnificent with rainbow pastel toning over nearly perfect and highly lustrous surfaces. The eye appeal is spectacular! Only 6 have graded finer at PCGS.
CAC. Thick silver-white luster with a very light sprinkle of russet on the reverse. The strike is very sharp and the surfaces are devoid of significant abrasions. Super quality!
