For the past few weeks, I've been posting brief accounts of classic-era US commemorative coins that have two (or more!) dates within their design over in the "Post Your..." forum area. Here's an index to these "Coins with Dual Dates." I came up with 39 (!) different coin types that include dual anniversary dates. Have I missed any?

Dual dating is a fairly common design approach for commemorative coins and medals and is found throughout the US commemorative classic and modern coin series. I like dual dates on commemorative coins - I find they tell an important part of the story being recalled by the piece.

This index provides quick access to more than three dozen brief posts that discuss the significance of the dates included on the silver or gold coin(s) discussed.

1. 1892 World's Columbian Exposition - Columbus Half Dollar
2. 1903 Louisiana Purchase Exposition Gold Dollar
3. 1920 Maine Statehood Centennial
4. 1920-21 Pilgrim Tercentenary
5. 1921 Alabama Statehood Centennial
6. 1921 Missouri Statehood Centennial
7. 1922 Grant Birth Centenary
8. 1923 Monroe Doctrine Centennial
9. 1924 Huguenot-Walloon Tercentenary
10. 1925 Battle of Lexington-Concord Sesquicentennial
11. 1925 Ft. Vancouver Centennial
12. 1926 American Independence Sesquicentennial - Half Dollar & Gold Quarter Eagle
13. 1927 Battle of Bennington / Vermont Independence Sesquicentennial
14. 1928 Hawaiian (European) Discovery Sesquicentennial
15. 1934 Province of Maryland Tercentenary
16. 1935-38 Daniel Boone Birth Bicentennial
17. 1935-39 Arkansas Statehood Centennial

38. 1946 Iowa Statehood Centennial
39. 1934-38 Texas Independence Centennial


- 1975-76 US Bicentennial Coinage

As I've stated in my previous index posts, there are a variety of US and world coins/medals/tokens on display in the target thread that match the theme - in this case dual dates - so I encourage you to scroll around a bit after you check out one or more of my US commemorative posts!

As always, for more of my topics on commemorative coins and medals, see: Commems Collection.
