The 1917 $1.00 Gold Commemorative commemorating the 25th President of the United States William McKinley was designed both by Charles Barber(obverse) and George T. Morgan(reverse). The 1917 McKinley was originally distributed in paper envelopes with "The National McKinley Birthplace Memorial Association, Youngstown, Ohio" imprinted on them. Barber's obverse design was initially intended for the 1903 Louisiana Purchase gold commemorative, but was turned down at that time. The 1916 and 1917 $1.00 Gold McKinley Commemoratives were issued to offset the costs of erecting a proper memorial for the late President. With an original mintage of only 15,000 coins, many of them were returned to the Mint where they were then melted.
