I reviewed more than the past year of this thread and didn't see this one posted, so...

1936 Albany (NY) Charter 250th Anniversary

The obverse of the coin features a very realistic depiction of a beaver; it also has a small eagle on the reverse (at the 12 o'clock position). The coin was designed and modeled by artist/sculptor Gertrude Lathrop.



If you'd like to learn more about this coin, have a look at my previous post about it: Albany Charter 250th Anniversary Half Dollar.

It's easy to miss it, but the obverse of the 1920 Maine Statehood Centennial commemorative half dollar includes a moose in its design (it's below the pine tree).

Maine separated from Massachusetts and became its own state (the Union's 23rd) on March 15, 1820. On May 10, 1920, President Woodrow Wilson signed into law the bill creating the Maine Statehood Centennial half dollar.

The core of the design on the coin's obverse is essentially the Seal of the State of Maine, while the reverse features simple commemorative inscriptions within a pine wreath. The designs were the work of Maine artist Harry Cochrane and the group planning the state's centennial celebrations. Anthony de Francisci - of Peace dollar fame - created the sculpted models for the dies.

"Fatt Calfe" anyone?

Here's the US 1938 250th Anniversary of New Rochelle commemorative half dollar.

New Rochelle was founded by Huguenots (Protestants) from France in 1688. They came to the New World to escape religious persecution and purchased a tract of land of 6,000 acres along the Long Island Sound to settle. The land was purchased from John Pell, Lord of the Manor of Pelham, for "the sum of Sixteen hundred twenty & Five pounds sterling currant [sic] silver money of this province" and "...one fatt calfe on every fourer & twentieth day of June YEARLY & Every Years forever (if demanded)." The settlement was named New Rochelle after the Port of La Rochelle in France (a Huguenot stronghold).

The obverse of the coin features Lord Pell receiving "one fatt calfe" (presumably the first) as part of the payment for the land. The reverse of the coin features a French fleur-de-lis which can be found both on the Seal of New Rochelle and the Seal of Port of La Rochelle. The coin was designed by Gertrude Lathrop who also designed the 1936 Albany Charter half-dollar.




If you'd like to learn more about the coin, check out my previous posts about it here: 1938 New Rochelle 250th Anniversary and here: 1938 New Rochelle Revisited
