None of the commemorative coins that you have listed were released for circulation on cupro-nickel planchets. All the business strike coins listed by you were struck on ferritic stainless steel planchets and the coins on mint sets were struck on cupro nickel planchets. The cupro-nickel ones being sold by dealers touting as rare OMS are all infact popped out of the mint sets :)
