  • Description:

    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 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.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 1901-O Barber Half Dollar doesn't have a very low mintage but can be difficult to find in higher grades. The 1901-O is in good condition, exhibiting heavy wear on the entire coin, with main image details missing, such as Liberty's intricate leaf headpiece. All individual coins are packaged in coin sleeves to ensure protection while in transit.

    For those, who enjoy collecting the famous 90% collections, the Barber Half Dollar is nothing short of the other series. Like many other collections, the Barber Half Dollar was minted at all four mints. The Old Mint, served as a branch of the US Mint from 1838-1861, then again from 1879-1909; serving alongside three other mints in order to produce the highly collectible Morgan silver dollar. Decommissioned in 1909, the New Orleans Mint has been used as an assay office, a fallout shelter, and a storage facility for the US Coast Guard. The Old Mint is considered an official historical landmark and is presently the oldest structure in the US. The Old Mint also participated in other important coin series, such as the Barber coinage, wherein it is one of the only coin collections that has the same design on all denominations.
