Lots of circulation and collector coins from around the world feature dual dates to highlight an anniversary (e.g., first year of something - last/current year of something).

It seems like a gallery of such pieces would be very interesting considering the history they typically celebrate. So, lets build one!

To kick things off, I present a dual-date design that was issued for circulation as well as specifically for collectors (in precious metal) - the 1776-1976 US Bicentennial Quarter, Half Dollar and Dollar.

The dual dates on each coin were mandated by the US Congress in the Act that authorized the striking of the US Bicentennial coinage. An open competition was held to select a design for each of the coins. A Drummer Boy design submitted by Jack Ahr was selected for the Quarter, an Independence Hall design by Seth Huntington was selected for the Half Dollar, and Dennis Williams' Liberty and Moon design was selected for the Dollar.

Here's a set of the silver clad versions with the signature of the artist of the winning design for each coin on the PCGS label.








Here's an interesting set of circulation versions of each coin, but without their reverse clad layer.

Here's one from the classic US commemorative series to complement the modern Bicentennial issue - the 1920 Pilgrim Landing Tercentenary Half Dollar.

The coin was issued to support the celebrations held to mark the 300th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing in America after their cross-ocean voyage in the Mayflower.

The dual dates of "1620" and "1920" are found on the coin's reverse near the bottom rim.

Another cupro-nickel 38mm 5 coin from the UK, struck in 1990 to commemorate the Queen Mother, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. The coin is dated 1900-1990:


Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother married the Duke of York (future King George VI) in 1923 and became Queen Consort on the abdication of his older brother Edward VIII in 1936. She outlived her husband by 50 years and was much admired by the British public, and was wonderfully portrayed by Helena Bonham-Carter in the movie 'The King's Speech'.

The first US commemorative coins to feature dual dates were the 1903 Louisiana Purchase Exposition (LPE) gold dollars; the dual dates of "1803 - 1903"are found on the reverse of the coins.

There are two types of the LPE gold dollar, each has a distinct obverse design but shares a common reverse design.

A left-facing portrait of the third US President - Thomas Jefferson - is featured on the obverse of one of the coins. Jefferson was the US President who approved the Louisiana Purchase and authorized Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to lead an expedition to explore the new territory and report back to the US Government on their findings. The expedition is often referred to as the "Corps of Discovery."

The obverse design of the second coin depicts a left-facing portrait of the then-recently-assassinated US President William McKinley. McKinley had signed the Act that created the Louisiana Purchase Exposition Commission in March, 1901; the Act set the stage for the US Government's participation in the Exposition. McKinley was assassinated at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY in September 1901 (he was shot on September 6 and died on September 14).

Though the enabling legislation for the coin made no mention of two designs being struck, the enterprising sponsor of the coin - the Louisiana Purchase Exposition Company - in conjunction with Farran Zerbe (the official manager of the LPE Souvenir Coin Department) developed a plan to request that the US Mint strike two designs so that William McKinley could be included and honored. The Exposition Company presented the second design as being a memorial to the fallen President.

@triggersmob: As a "local" - Do you consider the Hutt River Province issues to be legitimate coins or more a private-issue token?
