  • Description:

    The 1915-S Barber Half Dollar was minted by one of the top mints still standing, the San Francisco Mint, and was the final Barber Half Dollar to ever be minted, before being replaced by the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The 1915-S Barber Half Dollar is in good condition and will be packaged in a coin flip to ensure proper protection while in transit. Good condition is expected to contain severe wear on both sides of the coin but the date is still readable. The 1915-S Barber Half Dollar contains the infamous "S" mint-mark, indicating its place of mintage. The San Francisco Mint was established during the California Gold Rushes and helped prospectors turn their mined gold into coins.William Barber, the designer of the Barber Half Dollar, 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.

    Lady Liberty has always been a symbol US Mint engravers strive to elevate and update through the years. Liberty's history dates back to Greek mythology, wherein she was a goddess among the warrior and is the reason why she is always portrayed as a Grecian goddess.Since the Mint Act of 1792, all US Mint branches are required to include some symbol of Liberty on the currency. Lady Liberty 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. Olive branches have always represented peace, while the torch is a light amidst battle.
