First in War, First in Peace, and First on a Modern Commemorative

The U.S. Mint hadn't produced a commemorative half dollar since 1954. In 1982, they decided to revive the tradition. And what better subject than George Washington's 250th birthday? To celebrate, the mint struck these 90% silver halves in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) and Proof condition. They feature our first president on a horse and show Mt. Vernon on the reverse. Firsts are always coveted, and this first silver half hasn't been seen in years. Here's your chance to get both versions. The Proof was minted in San Francisco and the BU in Denver.

To meet the need for a United States Mint location in the heart of the West, the U.S. Government acquired the assay office and private mint of Clark, Gruber and Company for $25,000 in 1863. While a new assay office was immediately set up in its place, the new branch of the U.S. Mint wasn't in full operation until 1906. Initially responsible for minting $20 Double Eagles from Colorado gold, today the Denver Mint produces about 40 million coins a day -- a total of 8 billion coins a year.
