Here's a classic commemorative coin with an unusual history. The 1920s were roaring. Speakeasies flourished, and Bessie Smith belted the blues while images of Charlie Chaplin filled the silent screen. But Hollywood was embroiled in scandal. So the film industry held a public exposition in June 1923 to help improve its image.
Hollywood wanted a commemorative coin struck for its expo. And since 1923 marked the 100th anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine, it was decided to honor the occasion on a silver half dollar. And now you can add one to your collection – in stunning Gem Uncirculated condition!
