David Hall:

The 1927 Vermont silver half dollar was struck to comemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Bennington. This beautifully executed design featured founder and Green Mountain Boy Ira Allen on the obverse and a Canada lynx on the reverse. Interestingly, there was some talk of striking both silver and gold commemoratives of this issue. Unfortunately, the gold commem idea was dropped. Today, the Vermont is one of the rarer coins in the commemorative series. The Vermont was issued at a price of $1 and most were saved. The Vermont has an excellent early price history, particularly in the 1960 to 1980 time frame when it was one of the more expensive coins in the series, and rightly so, because it truly is one of the rarer issues. Indeed, I know of no significant hoards or large quantities that have ever been available. Most Vermonts have frosty luster and though the relief is very high, strike doesn't seem to ever be a problem.
