Missouri

The Missouri Commemorative Coins are composed of two coins: a Missouri Plain and the Missouri 2x4. The 2x4 variety was minted with 5,000 examples. After which, the 2x4 was removed, and the rest of the mintage (45,000 coins) was completed. It was done this way, as with other commemorative coins, for economic gains. Missouri coins do not have spectacular toning, such as reds, gold, or green. It is more muted and faint. It also lacks luster, and its shallow design results in few being well struck. These features, plus the large number of marks make these coins generally low-grade. The highest grade of any Missouri is PCGS 66+.


No original holders are known except the leather pouch above, embossed with "1921 Centennial Year Farmers Bank, Tipton, MO." The coin was distributed from this bank in this pouch, but we do not know how many were distributed this way. There are a few pamphlets, postcards, programs, pin backs, badges, medals, and at least one Bank Tag of Missouri Coins from The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, MO to the Department of Treasury, Washington D.C. These were then transferred to the Philadelphia mint for melting. Only plain coins were returned for melting. In total, 29,600 plain coins were melted, leaving a mintage of 15,400.
