    The 90% Silver Assorted Barber Coins Circulated $10 Face is a great way to get your hands on some low premium 90% silver. This small bag of Barber coins can contain a mixture of denominations and will have a face value of $10. Often referred to as "junk" silver, 90% silver is a popular item among silver investors, since it is recognized US currency and it has a high percentage of silver. The Barber Half Dollar was a part of an entire coinage series, including the dime and quarter as well. The Barber design was named after the US Mint's Chief Engraver, William Barber. The coins were in circulation from 1892-1916, but the half dollar wasn't minted the last couple of years before the series ended. William Barber was ultimately assigned the task to create a new design for the US currency, that would replace the Seated Liberty. The new design was received with mixed emotions and would be replaced in 1916.

    Barber used to Head of Liberty to grace the obverse of the Barber coin series. Liberty's look is inspired by a Grecian Goddess and she wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown. "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse of the Barber Half Dollar. The reverse contains the nation's official seal, which is of a heraldic eagle holding a shield. Each of the eagle's talons are grasping a symbolic gesture: olive branches and arrows. This design is still used on modern day coinage and represents the strength of the nation, while understanding the price that needs to be paid for freedom. The coin's legal tender value, of one half dollar, is also included on this side and 13 stars are pictured honoring the original 13 colonies.
