  • Description:

    Considered to have the lowest mintage in the entire Barber Half Dollar series, the 1914 Barber Half Dollar is a top priority for all coin collectors. Only 124, 230 Barber Half Dollars were minted in 1914, at the first mint in the US, the Philadelphia Mint. The history of the Philadelphia Mint is one that dates back to the beginning of this country. The US desperately needed an identity but also a means to international commerce so the Founding Fathers decided that a national mint was the answer. The Certified Barber Half Dollar 1914 G6 NGC has been certified by the top grading agency in the world and hits the middle of the good condition grading scale. Preserved in an official NGC certified holder, the 1914 Barber Half is in good condition, exhibiting extreme wear on both sides of the coin but the date is still readable. Investing in a certified coin not only increases the value of the coin itself, but it also protects the coin for a long time.

    With their $90 silver content, investors also jump at the opportunity to own these older collections and also enjoy the history connected to such collections. The Barber Half Dollar was designated to replace the Seated Liberty but finding a design was more difficult than imagined. The Mint Director Edward Leech, wanted to hold a competition for the next coinage design. Adding the appeal of a cash prize for the winner, the local turnout was a bit underwhelming. The artists that were invited to participate wanted a different prize, under different terms, and withdrew when their needs weren't met. Leech resorted to inside the mint, wherein he worked with the Chief Engraver at the time, to construct a new design. The Chief Engraver, William Barber, was approved by president, Benjamin Harrison, to move forward with the Barber coinage. The Barber collection is one of the only coin series to simultaneously have the same design on the half dollar, quarter, and dime.
