Description & Analysis

The Louisiana Purchase issues, which revived an abolished denomination and displayed the nation's first gold commemorative designs, were minted to the maximum quantity permitted by the authorizing law, and the distributors had high hopes for sales; however, more Exposition attendees were interested in Olympic gold than commemorative gold (the third Olympic Games were held in St. Louis in conjunction with the Exposition). The vast majority of pieces struck were later melted.
