Notes

^1 The George Washington Bicentennial half dollar was originally proposed as a traditional non-circulating commemorative coin. However, President Herbert Hoover vetoed the proposal in 1930.
^2 The Washington quarter was originally intended to be struck in 1932 only. The design was found to be popular with the public, and was produced again in 1934 (no quarters were struck in 1933). The coin has been in production as a regular issue coin ever since, although the 1932 quarter is considered the only commemorative eagle reverse Washington quarter. [52]
^3 The George Washington Bicentennial half dollar was again proposed as a circulation coin. Washington was to appear on the half dollar for one year only in 1932. However, due to the lack of demand because of the Great Depression, no half dollars were minted for circulation for three years from 1930 to 1932. Washington quarters were struck instead.

Many of these coins are not intended for general circulation, but are still legal tender. The mint also produces commemorative medals, which are similar to coins but do not have a face value, and therefore are not legal tender.

Oregon Trail Memorial half dollar US commemorative 50-cent coin

The Oregon Trail Memorial half dollar was a fifty-cent piece struck intermittently by the United States Bureau of the Mint between 1926 and 1939.

Struck over a lengthy period in small numbers per year, the many varieties produced came to be considered a ripoff by coin collectors, and led to the end, for the time, of the commemorative coin series.

The Missouri Centennial half dollar is a commemorative fifty-cent piece struck by the United States Bureau of the Mint in 1921. It was designed by Robert Ingersoll Aitken.

The federal Commission of Fine Arts hired Aitken to design the coin, which depicted Daniel Boone on both sides. The reverse design, showing Boone with a Native American, was likely intended to symbolize the displacement of the Indians by white settlers.
