Description
Commemorative coins are authorized by the United States Congress to honor individuals, groups, or organizations. They are usually intended to help raise funds through sale to the public for worthy causes. A surcharge is added to the cost for making and distributing the coins which goes as a contribution to whatever recipient is designated in the Act of Congress authorizing the issue. They are frequently limited to one year for minting.
