I reviewed the past 12+ months of the thread and didn't see this one, so...

1921 Alabama Statehood Centennial Half Dollar

Alabama marked the centennial of its statehood in 1919. Its Centennial Commission didn't think about a commemorative coin until 1920 and the US Mint didn't strike the coin until 1921.

The 22 stars on the coin's obverse symbolize that Alabama was the 22nd state. The coin's designs were prepared by Laura Gardin Fraser from concepts presented by the Alabama Centennial Commission.




if you'd like to learn more about the coin, check out my previous post here: 1921 Alabama Statehood (2x2 Variety) Half Dollar.

Did someone say 5 stars.

2001 20 cent coin from Australia depicting the state of South Australia, with the 5 stars of the Southern Cross.

Excellent! Very nice example!

It seems like you may be getting to the point with your Extended Ike Collection where you will need to extend to World coins - there are a good number of them!

The thought never occurred to me! I followed your direction on medals, I might have to take your advice once again.

If you have a list, it might make for a nice topic.

Here are the three commemorative coins that were struck at the Branch Mint in Manila, PI to mark the Philippines' transition from US Territory to US Commonwealth. The set includes one 50 Centavos coin and two One Peso pieces.

The reverse of the coins features the Commonwealth's coat-of-arms. The design brings together various elements of Philippines history. The main element is a shield which features three stars at its top; the stars represent the three main island groups of the Philippines (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao). At the center of the shield is an escutcheon which features a modified version of the coat-of-arms of Manila which was granted to the city in 1596 by the King Philip II of Spain. The castle and mythical sea lion (with sword) are incorporated as symbols of the Philippines' colonial history under Spain. An eagle, representing the US-Philippines connection surmounts the shield. A scroll with the text "Commonwealth of the Philippines" is seen below the shield.





I've written about these mostly-forgotten US commemorative coins before; you can read their story here: US-PI Commemoratives

It's a small one, but it's there! The star is at the 12 o'clock position on the obverse.

The coin commemorates the centennial of Maine's entry into the Union in 1820.
