I've never found a commem in circulation, but I did find one in a roll several years ago. I posted this in another topic a few months back.


Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm thinking if you find these things in rolls, it's the same thing as finding it in circulation. Nice find!

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


Really? Very nice find and very interesting! That means American coin machines must take that thing.

USSID18,

I agree, for me anyway when I search rolled coins, those are "In circulation". If I had an unopened fed box, the likelihood of finding any other coins but those ordered is really not possible.

For what it is worth, I do not think you are wrong. A roll find is just as good as being found in circulation.

I'm thinking, most people think of circulation as receiving change from a store.

The same way it's "impossible" to find an "uncirculated" coin in "circulation"..........wrong.

What is your definition of commemorative coins.

The State Quarters and territory quarters are commemorative coins.

The ATB Quarters are commemorative coins.

The 2004-2005 nickels are commemorative coins.

The 1776-1976 quarter is a commemorative coin.

I believe the Presidential dollar coins are commemorative coins.

I believe the 1932 quarter was a commemorative coin.

I believe the 2009 cents were commemorative coins.

Well, for what it is worth, I have received rolled coin as change many times in my life.

Exactly. Uncirculated is a condition, not a location.

Okay...

According to the US Mint, circulated coins is defined as:

"Circulating coins are the coins that the United States Mint produces for everyday transactions. Circulating coins are also included in the United States Mint's annual coin sets, which are the staple of coin collecting."

So they could be in either roll form or loose, but as stated earlier, circulated is a condition and intended use not where they are found.

The only 2 commemorative coins I got from circulation (aka banks) was a 1893 worlds fair half and a George Washington Carver half dollar.
