History of U.S. Commemorative Coins

The US Mint began producing commemorative coins in modern times with the release of the first modern commemorative coin program in 1982.

The first commemorative coins issued were the George Washington 250th Anniversary Half Dollar and the 1982 George Washington Silver Half Dollar. These coins marked the beginning of a new era for the US Mint, allowing them to create special coins that went beyond the standard circulating and bullion coinage.

Since then, the US Mint has continued to produce a wide variety of commemorative coins, each showcasing a unique theme or honoring a specific person, event, or cause of historical importance.
