First struck 125 years ago in 1892, Barber coinage replaced the long-running Liberty Seated designs on the dime, quarter and half dollar. Each series featured Charles Barber’s classic depiction of Liberty on the obverse – and marked the end of an era.
After more than two decades, Barber’s designs were replaced as part of an effort to put more artistic designs on America’s circulating coins. This marked the final time the same motif was featured on multiple denominations! Now’s your chance to enjoy six 90% silver coins of transition:
- Barber & Mercury dimes – Barber design and sculptor A.A. Weinman’s beloved image of Liberty wearing a winged cap that replaced it
- Barber & Standing Liberty quarters – The Barber coin and the acclaimed Standing Liberty motif by Hermon A. MacNeil that replaced it – depicting Liberty at the gateway to America bearing a shield and olive branch
- Barber & Liberty Walking half dollars – The Barber half dollar and the image of Liberty striding toward the dawn of a new day, also by Weinman, which is considered one of America’s most beautiful coinage designs.
Each coin is encapsulated and the 6-coin set comes in a handsome display case (dates our choice) plus, you SAVE off individual prices. Order now to own 6 historic silver coins recalling the early 20th-century renaissance of American coinage design.
