The first known commemorative coin from the United States Mint was a special version of the 1848 Quarter Eagle, or $2.50 gold coin. This coin was released to mark the discovery of gold in California and was produced with a “CAL” mark on the coin’s reverse surface above the design of the heraldic eagle. Commemorative coining continued for the next century until demand and interest waned in the 1950s. The Eisenhower Administration ended commemorative coining after the 1954 Carver-Washington Half Dollar was issued. The US Mint did not resume coining commemorative coins until 1982.
