    Post your favorite modern commemorative coin or coins. Give a reason why you like it best. Have quite a few Commemorative coins, but since I was a literature major in college and grad School, the Mark Twain has become one of my all time favorites.

    I don't have a photo on hand...but my favorite is the 1999 George Washington $5 commemorative. I have always loved the Washington Quarter and the gold commemorative almost seemed like a classic re-look at the design just as they were phasing it out.

    I've also always loved the 1995 $5 Civil War Gold. I don't own one, but I love the design.

    I really wanted to love the Apollo 11 commemorative as I am a huge space junkie...but I just couldn't get past the design. I just don't like it.

    I like the Franklin silver dollar a lot, and a lot of the APE proof designs.

    I agree...I really like that one. To me, it's powerful imagery of what this country is supposed to stand for.

    I always liked the Leif Ericson Silver Dollar. I like Vikings and the font is cool.

    The U.S. mint has flooded the market with modern commemoratives so the choice is too hard for me to have only one favorite. I prefer one of the older 56 minted commemoratives from 1904 to 1954, but that's just me.

    I like that one a lot, but I think I like the silver dollar version just a tad more! Polish_20200702_134239223.jpg

    Shoot.......gots too many 'favs'. :)

    I've been an admirer of 'Twain' since I was a kid. His humor and down to earth thinking has always kept me grounded.

    I'm not a member of the Lions Club, but I gotta say I love the Lions on the reverse of the commem.

    I love the symbolic nature of the 2014 Civil Rights commem.......the three flames intertwined symbolizing freedom of education, freedom to vote, and freedom to determine ones' destiny.

    1904? I thought it was 1892/93.

    Actually one of my favorite commemorative tokens—my USN challenge coin.

    I have two silver 1986 Olympic coins both are slabbed and certified authentic. They are gorgeous.

    I was going by the latest Red Book which states Modern Commemoratives start in 1982.
