  • Description:

    The 1907 Barber Half Dollar contains an average mintage but can be difficult to locate. In extra fine condition, the 1907 Barber Half Dollar exhibits pretty worn edges with the main image details not compromised. The 1907 was minted at the Philadelphia Mint and will be packaged in a coin flip for protection while in transit.The Philadelphia Mint was first established by the Founding Fathers in 1792. Philadelphia once stood as the nation's capital and was the perfect place to begin a new era of coin making. The Philadelphia Mint never placed mint-marks on their coins, especially since they were the only mint for over 40 years.

    Edward Leech, the Mint Director, decided he wanted to update the Seated Liberty design. Offering a cash prize for the winner, Leech reached out to local artists and wanted to hold a competition for the best design. When he received negative feedback, Leech went to the Chief Engraver, William Barber, and came out with an ideal design that President Benjamin Harrison approved of. The Barber coin series is one of the only series to contain the same design on the dime, quarter, and half dollar at once. On the obverse of Barber Half Dollars, Liberty is pictured and is wearing a Grecian leaf crown. The obverse also contains the coin's date of mintage. The reverse reveals a heraldic eagle, draped in a shield and is holding arrows and olive branches in its talons. This design has been used over time on most US currency and is the US national seal.
