  • Description:

    Ever wonder why the US has an obsession with Lady Liberty? For one, she represents everything this nation has fought for and continues to fight for: liberty, freedom, democracy. Her importance can be compared to a president's importance, wherein she is also included on US currency along with certain presidents' portraits. Usually, Lady Liberty is depicted as a tall and slender woman who resembles a Greek goddess. Her clothes are a light-weight Grecian robe and she is almost always holding another patriotic symbol, such as a torch or olive branches. Since the Mint Act of 1792, all US Mint branches are required to include some symbol of Liberty on the currency. Liberty's history dates back to Greek mythology, wherein she was a goddess among the warrior, and her history is honored on most US coinage as a goddess.

    The 1913-S Barber Half Dollar was minted by one of the top mints still standing, the San Francisco Mint, and contains one of the lower mintages in the series! The San Francisco Mint was established during the California Gold Rushes and helped prospectors turn their mined gold into coins. Considered to be in fine condition, the 1913-S Barber Half Dollar is expected to contain some wear, with intricate details lacking. The 1913-S Barber Half Dollar will be packaged in a coin flip to ensure proper protection while in transit. William Barber, the designer of the Barber Half Dollar, stuck with a classic portrayal of Liberty on his coins. Liberty's distinct profile is captured and her head is adorned with a Acanthus leaf crown. Barber was the Chief Engraver when he was asked to design a new half dollar, dime, and quarter. His design was received with mixed emotions by the public but was still able to last a couple of decades.
