US Commemorative Washington 1982
It did not take government mints long to figure out they could make money by producing special coins and selling them to collectors. The US mint started doing this in the late 1800s and several popular and successful commemorative coin programs ensued. This practice is not limited to the US government. Most countries today issue commemorative coins and sell them to collectors. In fact, some island nations make commemorative coins a primary source of government income.
