That is so weird. I was just getting ready to log-off for the night and said; let me scan the forum one more time.

I literally just put this in a flip. I found it yesterday going through a box of half's. The proof luster is completely gone! It almost slipped past me. I almost completely missed it! This is the only commemorative I have ever found in circulation.

Do you consider the 2009 Lincoln cent,2017-P Lincoln cent commemorative coins? There are a bunch more of that type in different denominations as well.

USSID18,

Yes, I found 2 of the statue of liberty 1986 in the same roll. That roll also had a Saudi Riyal and 1944 & 1954 silver halfs. The reason for my question was this was the first time I had ever seen a commemorative coin pop up in a roll search.

Nice! Would like to see the Saudi Riyal and 1944 & 1954 silver halfs. What's a Saudi Riyal?

No, I don't. I consider the 2009 Lincoln's more of a type set.

Not US, and not in a roll, but I've snagged a 1964 Canadian Charlottetown commemorative silver dollar from circulation in the US. This would have been about 4 years ago.
Oldest circulation finds: Cent 1902; 3CN 1867; Nickel (Buffalo/no date); Dime 1924; Quarter 1932; Half 1936; Dollar 1900; Banknote 1928 $2

Yes, that's true. Every coin ever minted commemorates something.

A 1982 cent commemorates 1982.
A 1983 cent commemorates 1983.
A 1984 cent commemorates 1984.
A 1985 cent commemorates 1985.

Here is the Saudi Riyal, it is the equvilent to a US dollar coin, but it is 90% silver. This coin is a 1954.
