Favorite U.S. Commemorative Coin of all time?

@kranky

Mine is the 1848 CAL $2.50 gold. I know not everyone considers that a commem but in my mind it is the first US commem. The gold came from the California gold rush, the CAL counterstamp was put on the coin by hand while it still sat on the obverse die.

 

It's a historical, tangible link to the California gold rush. And sadly, a very expensive one.

 


 

 that's cool!!! even though it's pricey.

These two series don't get a whole lot of love, but I've recently become infatuated with them and am determined to collect a complete set of each.........

I have always loved the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition $50 gold pieces. If the mint goes ahead with plans to issue half-eagle versions of these coins next year, I plan to be first in line to get them!

  I love this coin,too! It is absolutely stunning to me. The tiny country of Niue made a 100th anniversary coin of this coin, lol. I will post a pic of the Niue coin.

So many choices, I do hope to eventually narrow my collecting to specific types

I'm sorry can't send a picture of my coin. But I believe you'll have no problem finding it. It's Antitum! Went there years ago when  was able and my friend had this magazine out and I said I've been on that bridge! Sure enough it was Antitum! So I picked it up! And it's my favorite but I still love everyone I own. I wish I could send a picture. Thanks for the thread Mike.
