@jbuck: It's a shame you go after such low-grade coins for your Eisenhower collection!

(Beautiful examples, BTW! )

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


They were definitely a private issue, that was unknown to Prince Leonard of HRP, but when he found out about them, he eventually decided to accept them as official releases to save confusion amongst collectors.

The second authorized US commemorative silver half dollar to feature dual dates was the 1920 Maine Statehood Centennial coin; the dual dates of "1820 - 1920" are found on the obverse of the coin within a wreath; the coin's reverse presents a reasonably faithful Maine State Seal.. The coin was sponsored in the US Congress by the Maine Centennial Committee and its bill was enacted on May 10, 1920. (The 1920 Landing of the Pilgrims Tercentenary half dollar was a close third, its bill was signed into law on May 12, 1920.)

Maine was admitted to the Union on March 15, 1820; it was the 23rd State to join.

The 1921 Alabama Statehood Centennial half dollar features the dual dates of "1819-1919" on its reverse. Alabama became the 22nd State to be admitted to the Union on December 14, 1819; it celebrated its Statehood Centennial in 1919.

That statement should give a collector pause. Why was a coin struck in 1921 to celebrate an anniversary two years prior?

In 1919, as Alabama marked its centennial, the Alabama Centennial Commission did not have a commemorative coin on its agenda. In 1920, however, the idea surfaced and Congress was subsequently approached. Though introduced and approved in 1920, the Alabama Statehood Centennial half dollar was not struck by the US Mint until the second half of 1921. The date of striking, however, did not impact the coin's reverse design which highlighted the State's milestone year dates below its eagle.

Missouri became the 24th State of the Union on August 10, 1821; it celebrated its centennial in August 1921 with a special Centennial Exposition and State Fair at Sedalia, MO. The Missouri Centennial Committee sponsored a coin in Congress in January 1921; it was enacted into law on March 4, 1921.

The statehood milestone dates of "1821" and "1921" flank Daniel Boone's left-facing portrait on the coin's obverse. The coin's reverse includes 24 stars to represent the State's status as the 24th to be admitted.

This one is dual dated on the reverse, but also another date on the obverse, so triple dated.

The 1892 World's Columbian Exposition - Christopher Columbus Half Dollar is a coin of several firsts, including being the first US commemorative coin and the first to feature dual dates. The coin's reverse features both "1492" and "1892."

"14" and "92" flank the globes beneath the sailing ship on the coin's reverse, with "1892" seen below the globes.

The souvenir half dollar, as it was referred to in the Act that authorized it, was struck in 1892 and 1893. The dual dates in 1892 make good sense considering the coin was struck to support an exposition being staged to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Columbus' first voyage to the New World in 1492. The pairing made a bit less sense in 1893 - the 401st anniversary year - but the 1893 did correspond to the opening year of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, IL (which missed its original opening target of 1892), so there was some historical relevance.

The dual dates seen on the obverse of the 1922 Ulysses S Grant Birth Centenary half dollar and gold dollar (below the portrait) represent Grant's birth year (1822) and the year of its 100th anniversary (1922); Grant died in 1885.

Grant was the 18th US President, following Andrew Johnson who had succeeded Abraham Lincoln after his assassination. Grant served two terms, being in office from March 4, 1869 to March 4, 1877. Before serving as US President, Grant was the Commanding General of Union forces in the Civil War, and accepted the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865; Lee's surrender effectively ended the US Civil War.

The Grant coin was struck as a silver half dollar and a gold dollar, with the same design being used on both denominations. Laura Gardin Fraser was the designer.

The 1923 Monroe Doctrine Centennial half dollar marks the 100th anniversary of the United States (US) declaring to the world that it would not stand by and allow European powers (or anyone else) to pursue new colonies in the Western hemisphere.

The Monroe Doctrine was not a standalone document like the Declaration of Independence or the Gettysburg Address. The several principles that came to be known as the "Monroe Doctrine" were statements made by Monroe as part of his annual address to Congress in December 1823; the points were largely written by John Quincy Adams, Monroe's Secretary of State.

The coin's dual dates are found on its reverse. The milestone years "1823" and "1923" flank a small scroll with a quill pen at its center. The scroll and quill pen are meant to call to mind the original Doctrine.

The coin's obverse design presents conjoined, left-facing portraits of President James Monroe (rear portrait), the fifth US President (he served March 4, 1817 - March 4, 1825), and his Secretary of State John Quincy Adams (September 22, 1817 - March 3, 1825).

The 1924 Huguenot-Walloon half dollar dates to the classic era of US commemorative coinage. It was struck to mark the 300th anniversary of the settling of New Netherland and the Middle States by French and Belgian Huguenots and Walloons under the auspices of the Dutch West Indies Company.

The coin's reverse is where the dual dates of "1624" and "1924" are found - the milestone dates flank the sailing ship Nieuw Nederlandt which carried early settlers from Europe across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World. The coin's obverse design presents conjoined portraits of Admiral Gaspard de Coligny and William the Silent. Neither of the men ever traveled to the new colony as they were each assassinated decades before the 1624 New Netherland settlement efforts - their inclusion stirred a bit of controversy!
