The Barber Half Dollar is a coin that was minted in the United States from 1892 to 1915. It was designed by Charles E. Barber, who was the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint at the time. The coin is also commonly referred to as the Barber Silver Half Dollar, as it was made of 90% silver.

 

The obverse of the coin features the bust of Liberty, facing right, with the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" around the border and the year of minting at the bottom. The reverse of the coin features an eagle with outstretched wings, holding an olive branch and arrows, with the words "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (out of many, one) above and the denomination "HALF DOLLAR" below.

 

The Barber Half Dollar was the successor to the Seated Liberty Half Dollar, which had been in circulation since 1839. The design of the Barber Half Dollar was considered a departure from the more classical designs of previous US coins, as it featured a more realistic and detailed portrait of Liberty. The coin was also well-received for its overall simplicity and elegance.

 

Today, the Barber Half Dollar is considered a highly collectible coin among numismatists and coin collectors. Its historical significance, beautiful design, and silver content make it a valuable addition to any collection.
