Regular Circulating Coin A term used by CoinBrag to differentiate normal circulating currency from circulating commemorative coins. Technically any coin with a person, place or thing depicted is commemorating what is portrayed. For example in the United States, the quarter dollar coin has had George Washingon's face on the obverse side since 1932. Though most numismatists would classify the coins minted between 1932 and 1974 as well as the 1977-1998 coins as normal circulating coins while the 1976 coin is considere commemorative non-circulating commemorative numismatist Nicholas 2011-07-23
