Not because of cost or availability , but because of your total dislike for it and could never see yourself owning one . Please state which coin and why .

Not one but "many" of today's modern commemorative coins! To many terrible designs to pick just one. The Mint spits them out like the post office spits out stamps!

Excellent assessment Tom . I myself think they are just another way for the mint to take advantage of new and old collectors to feed their pockets .Also as you state about their lame design , So I will never own a modern Commemorative .

Easy - the Susan B. Anthony dollar, easily the worst-looking coin in the entire history of this country if not the world.

I cannot think of any coin which I wouldn't want a nice, affordable example of given the right situation.

I'd go along with most of the modern commemoratives; no interest at all in the subject of the coin. I'd agree that the SBA is the least attractive regular issue, but that didn't stop me from assembling a set.

Aw c'mon @cf, is a Susan B really uglier than this awful Chinese fake Saint Helen and Ascension Island 50 Pence?

Besides, you can't even spend this thing...

Commems, I can't find a single one that I geniunely like. None of the designs have any appeal to me, classic or modern.

On what basis do you consider this coin the worst-looking?

Susan B. Anthony (February 15, 1820 - March 13, 1906) was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17.
