At sunrise on April 19, 1775, a group of colonial militia faced down British redcoats at Lexington, MA and again at Concord, firing the shot that was heard around the world! One hundred fifty years later in 1925, the Philadelphia Mint struck the Lexington- Concord commemorative half dollar, honoring those important battles. Now add this prized 90% silver classic to your collection.
Designed by Chester Beach, this dual-dated 1775-1925 coin features an image of the Minuteman statue, found in Concord, MA, on the obverse. The reverse shows the Belfry at Lexington, whose bell sounded the warning that early April morning long ago. A mere 162,013 of these historic halves were distributed over 85 years ago, and many circulated. So, while these genuine silver commemoratives don’t meet industry grading standards, they do make an affordable way to own this desirable issue. Very popular, with high demand – don’t wait to get yours.
