  • Description:

    The designer of the Barber Half Dollar, William Barber, 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. The 1895 Barber Half Dollar was minted by the first mint establishment in the US, the Philadelphia Mint. The 1895 Barber Half Dollar, in good condition, will be packaged in a coin flip to ensure proper protection while in transit. The Philadelphia Mint dates back to 1792, when the Founding Fathers first made the US an independent nation. Since then, the Philadelphia Mint has participated in hundreds of famous and highly numismatic coin collections, omitting any type of mint-mark.

    Liberty has always been an important and patriotic symbol in the US. 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 revered at times of battle and is the reason why she is always portrayed as a Grecian goddess.
