The Classic U.S. Commemorative Silver Coins were those issued between 1892 and 1954. The first of these silver commemoratives was a half-dollar issued in 1892 in conjunction with the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World. It sold for $1 at the fair. While nearly all of the Classic Silver Commemoratives minted were half dollars, and many marked important historical events, an Isabella quarter dollar was issued in 1893, and a Lafayette dollar was issued in 1900.
