Commemorative coins are coins that have been minted to commemorate a particular event, person or organization. Early U.S. Commemorative Coins
are considered to be coins minted from 1892 to 1954. In the early part of 1954, the United States Mint was heavily criticized for producing commemorative coin issues of questionable recognition, and seemingly endless mint runs of coins
