20 Notable Commemorative Coins

From Tiny British Coins to Trekkie Legal Tender

— February 17, 2015 — Art & Design
Whether it's to honor a particular site, event or person, these commemorative coins do it with style. Since they're usually offered in limited quantities, special edition coins often give designers the liberty to get creative with their visions. Some of the radical changes that have been introduced with these examples of commemorative currency include the implementation of vivid colors, curved forms and even changes to the number of sides a coin is minted with.

In terms of novelty, one of the neatest coins comes from the Dutch Royal Mint and includes a QR code to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Utrect mint. One coin to watch out for in 2015 is the one created by the UK's Royal Mint in honor of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Sheep.
