Volume Discount Pricing
Product Description: From 1892 through 1954, the U.S. Mint produced special commemorative coins for 53 different events, occasions, and individuals. This resulted in the production of over 180 silver and gold commemorative coins during that time period. Offered here is the first true silver commemorative half dollar struck by the United States Mint. This commemorative was struck for the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1892. The event was originally scheduled to take place that year but was postponed until 1893 resulting in two years of issue for this piece. Offered here is a pleasant example hand-selected by professional numismatists after screening thousands of coins for quality and eye-appeal. Each coin is housed in an airtight capsule and presented in a plush-lined box with display easel, magnetic lid, and certificate of authenticity. The coin is unconditionally guaranteed to be genuine, dated between 1892 and 1893, and will match the quality of the one shown.
