  • Description:

    The 1913-S Barber Half Dollar is another low mintage gem of only 604,000 minted! The 1913-S Barber Half Dollar is in good condition, exhibiting extreme wear on the entire coin surface but still contains a readable date. Carrying the infamous "S" mint-mark, the 1913-S was minted in San Francisco. The San Francisco Mint is well known, especially to avid collectors, since its history dates back to the historic California Gold Rush days. Established as a result of the gold rush, the San Francisco Mint turned out $4 million worth of gold into coins in just its first year of production. The west coast-based mint was able to move to its second location in its second year of production, nicknamed the Granite Lady. Although just the basement was comprised of granite, this building got its name due to its strength during the horrific Earthquake of 1906.

    Barber used to 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.
