Introductory Note: I have posted about many different aspects of the history of US commemorative coins here in the US Commemoratives area of CCF, most with "Commems Collection" in their title to enable automatic inclusion on the "Commems Collection" list created by Bobby. In addition, however, I have also posted about the design elements found on many of the coins over in the "Post Your..." galleries area, as well as within posts here under non-coin-specific titles. I've decided to collect these multiple design discussions for each coin of the series in one place for quick access, I present...

Excellent compilation of the topics commems - thanks

Reading again the link referenced in 'Coins Depicting Maps' I was reminded of the 8 cities represented by the stars on the reverse of this half dollar.

Great reads indeed.

Yeah, the stars on the map often fade into the background for those who view the coin. It was nice to briefly make them the focus!

IIRC, the star for Toronto, Ontario (Canada) represents the only time an individual foreign city was specifically called out/identified (though not by name) in the design of a classic era US commemorative coin.
