This coin was one of the four different commemorative coins issued during the year. This coin featured designs by Portland, Oregon artist Sidney Bell, which were modeled by Laura Gardin Fraser.
Fort Vancouver served as a trading center for settlers and Native Americans within the territory. These coins were issued as part of a week-long local celebration and sold for $1 each.
Authorized production was set at 300,000, which proved far too optimistic. A quantity of 50,000 coins was struck at the San Francisco Mint (although the coins did not carry the “S” mintmark), and after unsold coins were returned for melting, net distribution was a paltry 14,994 coins.
Authorization: Public Law 68-452
