Own the first commemorative coin from the U.S. Mint! Issued during 1892-1893 in conjunction with the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, these coins helped honor the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the New World. Struck in limited quantities in 90% fine silver, these U.S. half dollars were sold for $1 apiece at the exposition. The obverse features a bust of Christopher Columbus, while the reverse displays his flagship Santa Maria above two globes. Although these coins don’t meet industry grading standards, they offer an affordable way to own the historic first U.S. commemorative coin – handsomely presented in our colorful, exclusive Showpak® holder!
