Coin Story

Grand Central Terminal (GCT), usually called Grand Central Station, or shortened to simply Grand Central, is a commuter rail terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, United States. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger rail travel, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms: 44, with 67 tracks along them.
The terminal serves commuters traveling on the Metro-North Railroad to Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties in New York State, and Fairfield and New Haven counties in Connecticut. Until 1991 the terminal served Amtrak, which moved to nearby Pennsylvania Station upon completion of the Empire Connection.
Although the terminal has been properly called "Grand Central Terminal" since 1913, many people continue to refer to it as “Grand Central Station,” the name of the previous rail station on the same site, and of the U.S. Post Office station next door, which is not part of the terminal. It is also sometimes used to refer to the Grand Central, 42nd Street subway station, which serves the terminal.

The obverse features the stained-glass showing the image (on the window) in reverse, and parts of the inside of the station. On this side, together with the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, you will find the country of issue and the face value.
