  • Description:

    The 1892-O Barber Half Dollar has one of the lower mintages in the series and is in good condition. With only 390,000 minted, the 1892-O Barber Half Dollar exhibits extreme amounts of wear with the date being the most readable. The 1892-O Half Dollar carries the "O" mint-mark, indicating it was minted at the New Orleans Mint. During the time the Barber Half Dollar was in circulation, there were 4 different mints producing the highly collectible coins and known as the golden age in coin minting. Unfortunately, only 2 of those mints still stand today but the others offer an interesting look into coin production history. Among these mints was the New Orleans Mint, also known as the Old Mint. The Old Mint mainly depended on the success of the Morgan's production so much that when the Morgan's production stopped, the Old Mint was decommissioned shortly after. The New Orleans Mint's building as been used as a fallout shelter, an assay office, and a storage facility for the US Coast Guard.

    Like many other coin collections, William Barber used the 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 Barber Half Dollar series draws in investors, as well, due to their 90% silver content.
