The 1916 $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 1916 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.
