Now own a 16-coin set of elusive Barber silver half dollars, all consecutively dated from the last 16 years of issue. Struck from 1892-1915, the Barber half dollar ushered in the dawn of the 20th century, when America was becoming a world power. They circulated when the Panama Canal opened, the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk and Model Ts were produced.Because many other silver coins were in circulation during the Barber half’s time of issue, their mintages were kept low. In fact, nearly of the series had mintages of less than 2 million. In the early 1900s, these coins had lots of buying power, so most went into circulation. By 1916,a new half dollar series replaced them and by the late 1950s, Barber halves had vanished from circulation. In addition, silver melts of the 1970s and ’80s took their toll, making these 90% silver half dollars scarcer today.This consecutive year set gives you hand-selected Barber halves from the last 16 years of issue, 1900-1915, all with readable dates. Plus, your historic set includes Littleton’s custom album and you’ll SAVE! Now over 100 years old, these silver halves grow scarcer with each passing year – don’t wait to order your 16-coin year set!
