NGC - Coin of the Day: On August 18, 1587, Virginia Dare became the first English child born in America. She and the rest of the Roanoke Colony colonists vanished without a trace before a resupply mission arrived. This 1937 Roanoke Half Dollar was issued 350 years after her birth.

The Roanoke half dollar is my "local" commemorative half dollar, so I have posted a few times about it. If you're interested in reading more than the standard story of the coin, check out the following:

I know where to do my research before buying a Roanoke, or any other commemorative for that matter. Thanks as always for the informative posts, commems.
