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.

Condition
Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition. Proof coins are struck on specially-made planchets using polished dies. Proof coins are minted primarily for collectors and are not released for general circulation.
Currency Type Dollar
Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
