Give the very first commemorative coin released by the U.S. Mint! Issued to help fund the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, these coins honored the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the New World. Struck in limited quantities from 1892-1893 in 90% fine silver, these half dollars were sold for $1 apiece at the exposition. Each coin features a bust of Christopher Columbus on the obverse, while the reverse shows his flagship Santa Maria over two globes. Offered here in affordable Extra Fine condition and handsomely presented in Littleton’s exclusive Showpak®, this is an excellent gift that’s steeped in history!
