Commemorative Coins of the U.S.A.

Commemorative Coins of the U.S.A.

Commemorative coins are intended to honor important events (or at least politically significant events). Every commemorative coin has its own history. On the whole, though, commemorative coins of the United States reflect our history. Important accomplishments of our country and influential citizens are reflected by nearly all of these coins.

Valuations for each of the listed commemorative coins are estimates by American Coin using recent market data. The actual value of a coin may vary due to Grading (XF is Extremely Fine, Unc is uncirculated, MS is Mint State and Pr is Proof) and physical condition.
