  • Description:

    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. Collectors do favor coins minted at the San Francisco Mint, since they have a reputation of high quality control and boldly struck coins.

    Barber used the Head of Liberty, to grace the obverse of the Barber coin series, but of course, he wasn't the first designer to admire the Lady. 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. The 1900-S Barber Half Dollar is in very good condition, exhibiting wear on the entire coin, especially around the main image details, such as Liberty's headpiece or the eagle's feathers. All individual coins are packaged in coin sleeves to ensure protection while in transit.
