Owner's Comments

2001-S Clad Half Dollar PR69DCAM: Capitol Visitor Center { PCGS-3 } (May'2005) Mintage: 77,962 (proof) Nice black mirrors, though not one of the better commemorative designs with a very wordy reverse and just one top-grade proof specimen from PCGS. Interesting concept to show the outline of the current day capitol silhouetted behind the capitol two centuries earlier; still, a very plain "token-looking" commemorative with open broad flat surfaces in both the fields and devices making that perfect coin elusive.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 2001-P Capitol Visitor Commemorative Half Dollar was issued to commemorate the convening of the Capitol Building in 1800. It was also the first commemorative Half Dollar that had been issued in a 5 year hiatus. The Mint struck a Half Dollar and Dollar coin commemorating the Capitol Building. Both these denominations were struck in an Uncirculated and a Proof format.
