  • Description:

    The San Francisco Mint helped produce some of the most popular coin collections in history, including the Barber Half Dollars. This West Coast-based mint was first established in order to supply a place gold miners could sell their gold. It ended up being a very lucrative business, turning out $4 million dollars of gold in its first year. It quickly outgrew its first building and moved to the Granite Lady building, where it withheld its structure during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The building wasn't actually made of granite, just the basement was but the name was used for marketing and stuck. In 1937, it moved to its final facility that is still the San Fran Mint today. The 1900-S Barber Dime was minted by one of the top mints still standing, the San Francisco Mint and is in very fine condition. Very fine condition contains details that are still quite detailed but with worn edges. The 1900-S Barber Dime will be packaged in a coin flip to ensure proper protection while in transit.

    William Barber, the designer of the Barber series, 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.
