Miss Liberty Sent on Caribbean Cruise!

Over 75 million Seated Liberty Half Dollars were struck between 1839 and 1891. Yet, today they're one of the toughest-to-find vintage 19th century coins. Why? Ironically, the discovery of gold in California in 1848, caused their silver values to rise, and those millions of half dollars being churned out by the mint every year were snapped up by profiteers and sent to the West Indies where they were melted to get their silver! We're proud to offer these big silver coins. They'll go fast-and not to Jamaica, mon!
