Is this the lowest mintage of a commemorative coin ever?


That is one of the most sour-looking faces on any coin I’ve ever seen – matched only by Susan B. Anthony’s grimace on her namesake dollar.

If ever there was a coin which deserves to be locked away out of sight – this Lion’s Club silver dollat is definitely the one.
