Silver coins that are over a century old are sure to attract collector and investor interest. That much more so when the coins have a famous design and are minted at the US Mint such as these Silver Barber Half Dollar coins.
The real question for many collectors isn't what these coins are worth today, but what their worth will be in five, ten, or even twenty years. While it is impossible to determine exactly what will happen to the value of these coins will be in the future, we do know that the supply of Barber Half Dollars being bought and sold is diminishing so it would be more likely than not that the value of these coins will continue to increase over time.
Each coin was minted using 90% Silver, with a face value of 50 cents tender value. The popularity of these coins can be attributed to them being a good way to collect junk silver for your portfolio of precious metals while also acquiring a significant piece in the history of American coinage.
The obverse of the half dollars features Lady Liberty in a Phgyrian cap with “IN GOD WE TRUST” above her and stars on either side with the year minted at the bottom of the coin as well.
The reverse of these silver coins showcases an early rendition of the US Seal with the bald eagle, shield, and banner. The eagle is surrounded by stars and the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” & “HALF DOLLAR”.
Add these historical pieces to your collection at today’s silver spot. They were only minted for 24 years and feature one of the most iconic designs on any US coin.
