  • Description:

    The Mint's Director, Edward Leech, wanted to officially change the design of the Seated Liberty and imagined a competition among local artists would result in a great outcome. Holding a competition, Leech wanted to encourage participation by giving the winner a cash prize. All of the local artists invited declined and Leech resorted to his mint for direction. William Barber was ultimately assigned the task to create a new design for the US currency, that would replace the Seated Liberty. The new design was received with mixed emotions and would be replaced in 1916. The Barber design was named after the US Mint's Chief Engraver, William Barber. The 1907-D Barber Half Dollar doesn't have a low mintage, like its other counterparts, and is pretty accessible at a decent premium. Considered to be in good condition, the 1907-D Barber Half Dollar contains a very worn surface with extremely worn on the main image details, such as the heraldic eagle's feathering. Mint-marked with the "D" mark, the 1907-D Barber Half Dollar was the second Barber Half to be minted at the Denver Mint.

    Only established in 1906, the Denver Mint mainly focused on commemorative coins but also participated in the Barber Half Dollar production. Compared to the other US Mint branches, the Denver Mint was young when it started producing silver dollars. In 1921, the Denver joined forces with its sister branches to help produce the Morgan silver dollar, that was soon changed to the Peace silver dollar. Since the Denver Mint was established much later than the other mints, its participation in major coin collections was limited causing collectors to put any silver coin with a "D" mint-mark at the top of their collecting list. To this day, the Denver Mint is claimed to be the largest producer of coins worldwide!
