Expert Comments

David Akers: Despite its relatively low mintage of just 935,245 pieces, including Proofs, the 1892 Barber Half Dollar is by far the most common of the 74 issues in this series. Obviously, many were saved as souvenirs of the first year of issue of the design.

Diameter: 30.00 millimeters Designer: Charles E. Barber Edge: Reeded
Mintage: 934,000 Weight: 12.50 grams Metal Content: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
