US Mint commemorative coins were first issued in 1848. There was no programmatic approach to the issuance of these early commemorative silver coins from the US Mint. Most were released to mark important events, celebrate important people from American history, or even showcase certain events and institutions. President Dwight D. Eisenhower halted commemorative coin production in 1954 given luke-warm interest in recent design releases.
Starting in 1982, the United States Mint resumed the production of commemorative silver coins. One of the leading options at the time was the George Washington 250th Anniversary Half Dollar coin. Subsequent commemorative coin programs from the US Mint that include a half-dollar option include those marking the 100th anniversary of World War I and the 50th anniversary of NASAs Apollo 11 triumph.
On the obverse and reverse of any coin received in this product listing is a design chosen by the United States Mint to match a particular design program theme. As mentioned above, the World War I and Apollo 11 series featured half-dollars with designs honoring each of these historic moments.
