The 1925 Battle of Lexington-Concord half dollar is one of the classic era US commemorative coins that marked the sesquicentennial (i.e., 150th Anniversary) of the United States' fight for independence. The coin recalled the famous military engagements between British and American troops - the first such engagement of the American Revolutionary War - in the two Massachusetts towns (first in Lexington, then in Concord). The battles took place on April 19, 1775.

The coin's reverse - "the Lexington side" - incorporates the dual dates of "1775 - 1925" into its design at the lower rim. The obverse design depicts the Minute Man statue by Daniel Chester French - the statue was sculpted for the Lexington-Concord Centennial in 1875.

Fort Vancouver in the Oregon Territory (in the present-day State of Washington) was established by the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) in 1825. It was the main trading post in the area - primarily for fur trading. Dr. John McLoughlin was appointed as the HBC Chief Factor (manager) - a post he filled until he retired in 1846. McLoughlin led the fort's establishment efforts, as well as its ongoing development and management.

The dual dates of "1825" and "1925" flank the left-facing portrait of Dr. McLoughlin on the coin's obverse; the coin was struck to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Fort Vancouver. A view of the Fort/Trading Post (background) with a frontiersman/fur trapper (foreground) is presented on the reverse.

I've always liked the design of that coin. IMO, it's attractive, creative and features a novel artistic style.

Thanks for posting.

The United States marked the sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) of its Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776) in 1926. The biggest event of the year was the Sesquicentennial Exposition that was staged in Philadelphia, PA. To help financially support the Exposition, the US Congress authorized a silver Half Dollar and a gold Quarter Eagle ($2.50) for the Sesquicentennial Exposition Association to use as fund raisers.

Flanking the Liberty Bell on the reverse of the half dollar are the dual dates of "1776" and "1926." The half dollar's obverse design incorporates the conjoined portraits of George Washington (front), the first US President, and Calvin Coolidge, the President at the time of the Sesquicentennial.

On the gold Quarter Eagle, the "1776" and "1926" dual dates are seen on the obverse, on either side of the standing figure of Liberty. The coin's reverse design presents Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was debated and signed.

The 1927 Battle of Bennington / Vermont Independence Sesquicentennial Half Dollar is a true "dual commemorative" of the classic US commemorative coin series. The coin marks the dual sesquicentennial of the Battle of Bennington and Vermont's independence as a republic.

The Battle of Bennington was a battle between the forces of British General John Burgoyne and an American militia in upstate New York (in Walloomsac, NY) near the Vermont border. The British were attempting to march on Bennington, VT in an effort to secure horses and supplies. They were defeated by the Americans under the command of General John Stark.

A common misconception among collectors is that the second event being marked by the coin is the 150th anniversary of Vermont's admission into the Union as its 14th state. The anniversary being celebrated, however, is actually Vermont's own January 1777 declaration of independence from claims by New York and New Hampshire over its territory. It was originally called the "Republic of New Connecticut" but its name was changed to "Vermont" in June of the same year.

The coin's dual dates of "1777-1927" are found on its reverse, above the left-facing catamount. The design also includes the actual calendar date of the battle - August 16. The obverse design is dominated by a portrait of Ira Allen (brother of Ethan) who was a member of the Green Mountain Boys - a militia group from Vermont that originally formed to fight New York's claims on Vermont, but later fought against the British for the independence of the American Colonies.

British Captain James Cook visited the present-day Hawaiian Islands in 1778 during his third voyage of exploration around the world; the voyage focused specifically on the Pacific Ocean. He sighted the islands on January 18, 1778 and became the first European to land on them, doing so on January 20, 1778. He named the islands the Sandwich Islands as a tribute to the 4th Earl of Sandwich (England), John Montague; Montague was a strong supporter of Cook and his explorations, and helped arrange Royal financing for Cook's trips.

The sesquicentennial (i.e., 150th anniversary) of the European discovery of the islands was marked with a US commemorative half dollar; the request for the commemorative coin originated with the Hawaiian Legislature vs. a private group. Trivia Note: Hawaii was a US Territory at the time, not a state.

The coin bears the dual dates "1778-1928" on its reverse, at the lower rim under the native chieftain (IMO, King Kamehameha I ). The primary element of the coin's obverse design is a left-facing portrait of Captain Cook.

I like the coin's simple, classic and very meaningful design featuring the Returned & Services League (RSL) Badge.

The 300th anniversary of the founding of the Province of Maryland took place in 1934; the province/colony was established in 1634.

George Calvert had been given a grant for the province's land by King Charles I, but died before the grant received the Royal Seal and his dream could be realized. Charles made good on the grant after George's death, bestowing it upon George's eldest son Cecil. Due to political challenges at home with the sponsors of the Virginia colony, Cecil did not venture to the New World, sending his brother to establish the province/colony instead.

The Maryland colony traces its roots to March 1634 when colonists from England and Ireland, led by Leonard Calvert, Cecil's younger brother, arrived in two ships - The Ark and The Dove. The initial settlement of roughly 300 was named St. Mary's City after the English queen Henrietta Maria.

The coin's dual dates of "1634-1934" are found on its reverse, under the Maryland Coat-of-Arms (derived from the Calvert family Arms). The obverse design of the coin is predominantly a portrait of Cecil Calvert, Second Baron of Baltimore, and long-time leader of the colony.

The US commemorative coin program authorized half dollars to recall the 200th anniversary of the birth of Daniel Boone; it issued multiple coins each year from 1934 to 1938, inclusive. Beginning with the 1935-dated coins struck later in the year, after a program amendment was authorized by Congress and signed into law by US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Boone half dollars became dual-dated coins.

From the post-amendment 1935-dated coins onward, the half dollars carried the year of issue on their reverse along with a second date - "1934" - the actual year of Daniel Boone's birth. The "1934" date is found just above the "PIONEER YEAR" inscription to the right of the standing figures of Boone and Shawnee Chief Black Fish. The coin's obverse features a conceptualized image of a young Daniel Boone as he appeared during his years in Kentucky.
