1885-86 North, Central and South American Exposition

New Orleans, Louisiana

The earlier New Orleans Cotton Centennial Exposition lost money, but local residents considered it a success. The North Central and South American Exposition open less than six months later, at the same location; the stated goal was to celebrate peace and goodwill among the three Americas. Three so-called dollars were struck in various compositions for this exposition. The details are cataloged in my 2023 book So-Called Dollars Volume I: United States Expositions.
