Now, you can own the 90% silver Oregon Trail commemorative, honoring those brave pioneers. Issued in 1926, 1928, and 1933-39, these lustrous Mint State half dollars feature one of America’s most beautiful designs.
This coin shows a Conestoga wagon heading westward toward the setting sun, and a Native American, his arm outstretched as if to say “stop”.
