1934-1938 Daniel Boone Commemorative Half-Dollar 3-Piece Set NGC/PCGS MS65
Did You Know Daniel Boone Had His Own Silver Half Dollar?
Issued from 1934 to 1938, the Daniel Boone Commemorative Half Dollar is a stunning coin struck in gleaming 90% silver. One of America’s most notable frontiersmen, “Dan’l” Boone killed bears, lived with and fought Indians, and battled the British during the Revolutionary War. But he’s best known for blazing the famous Wilderness Road into Kentucky through the Cumberland Gap in 1775.
These coins were released to raise money for the restoration of historic sites associated with Boone and early Kentucky. However, the legislation for this coin did not specify the date, mint, or sales price – which served this coin well during the commemorative coin mania of the next few years. And now you can get not one but THREE of these fabulous commemoratives – one from each mint that struck it; Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. The coins will come graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in beautiful Mint State-65 (MS65) condition. Date and grading service may vary!
The coin’s obverse features a portrait of Boone sculpted by Augustus Lukeman. The reverse features Boone holding a treaty and musket next to Chief Black Fish, who adopted Boone as a son when he was captured by the Shawnee tribe in 1778. When most people think of Daniel Boone they think of Fess Parker, who starred as the titular character in the television show that aired on NBC from 1964 to 1970 and lives on today in syndication. But America’s fascination with Daniel Boone goes back even farther: Just a few years after the famed frontiersman’s death, author James Fenimore Copper based Nathaniel Bumppo, his main character in “Last of the Mohicans,” on Boone.
- POPULAR COMMEMORATIVE DESIGN – To honor the bicentennial of Daniel Boone’s birth in 1934, the U.S. Mint released this commemorative silver half-dollar.
