  • Description:

    The Barber Half Dollar was a part of an entire coinage series, including the dime and quarter as well. The Barber design was named after the US Mint's Chief Engraver, William Barber. The coins were in circulation from 1892-1916, but the half dollar wasn't minted the last couple of years before the series ended. The Seated Liberty design had run its course and the Mint's Director, Edward Leech, wanted to officially change the design. 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 Certified Barber Half Dollar 1892 AU55 NGC was the first year for the Barber Half Dollar to be minted. The Philadelphia Mint only produced 934,000 coins that year, causing extreme popularity among collectors. The 1892 Barber Half Dollar was certified by the top grading agency in the world, NGC, and comes in an airtight certified holder. For the Barber Half Dollars, almost uncirculated condition is the highest grade these relics have been found in. Not only is this 1892 in almost uncirculated condition, but it also earned the high grade of AU55, which is on the higher end of the AU grading scale.
