The Bicentennial of the Library of Congress presented a unique opportunity for commemorative items.

The U.S. Postal Service issued a commemorative stamp for the Library's Bicentennial. State and local libraries across the nation held second-day issue events.

Commemorative coins, which are highly collectible, were issued by the U.S. Mint. One of these coins is bimetallic (gold and platinum)-- a first in the nation's history.
