Description & Analysis

Two different gold commemoratives were struck to help offset the cost of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, which was held in St. Louis to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this monumental event. Although the anniversary actually took place in 1903, hence the date on each of these pieces, the fair was delayed until the next year because of the enormity of the undertaking. These pieces hold the distinction of being the first gold commemoratives struck by the United States. While both varieties feature a common reverse, one has a bust of Thomas Jefferson, who was president at the time of the Louisiana Purchase, and the other depicts William McKinley, who sanctioned the event.

Each of the two types had a total distribution of 17,500 pieces and were offered for sale to collectors or attendees of the exposition. The first 100 pieces of each variety were proofs and, rather than being sold, they were given to important individuals and officials.
