The first modern commemorative coins from the United States Mint debuted in 1982 with the release of a 225th Anniversary George Washington Silver Dollar. This coin was released to mark the 225th anniversary of the birthday of the first President of the United States of America. Since that time, the number of commemorative coins has only continued to increase.
Examples of recently gold commemorative coins include programs honoring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission at NASA to send humans to the Moon and return them safely to Earth.
