Barber Half Dollars 1892 - 1915

The Barber half dollar, introduced in 1892, took its name from its designer, Charles E. Barber. It replaced the liberty seated half dollar, which had been in circulation since the 1830s. Along with the dime and quarter, the Barber half dollar marked a transition towards a more uniform and patriotic design. Reflecting the evolving identity of the United States through its coinage, the Barber half dollar holds historical significance. Today, it is revered for its artistry, craftsmanship, and representation of American numismatic heritage.
