Commemorative coin

Commemorative coins are coins issued to commemorate some particular event or issue with a distinct design with reference to the occasion on which they were issued. Many coins of this category serve as collectors items only, although some countries also issue commemorative coins for regular circulation.

The US Bicentennial quarter is an example of a circulating commemorative coin. It is one of the most common commemorative coins, with over 1.6 billion minted,[1] and as a result is still in regular circulation.
