    hi All

    In the Dansco 7070 under modern coins there is a spot for a “modern commemorative” coin (I believe 1986 - now).

    Not very familiar with these but I see there are a lot. Any stick out as a particularly better design?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You're going to get a lot of opinions on this question. Pick the one you like best.

    1983-Date yes. I personally don't know all of them, but I've seen some very nice silver issues

    That is true - but inspiration from others is always fun and eye opening!

    That Bald Eagle is a nice one.

    I like keeping the Indian/Bison (buffalo) design around. But in this case with the 2001 $1, the obverse is good, the reverse...not so much. The bison's detail is missing and the legends are too plain...it looks like it was a weak strike too, the IGWT is flat, not fully formed. Because of the reverse, I would not purchase one.

    Conversely, that 2008 Flying Eagle is EXCELLENT!! I would definitely buy one...Spark
