The California commemorative half dollar was struck at the San Francisco Mint  in 1925 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of California statehood. A total of 150,200 were originally disributed. Many of them were distributed directly to the public at the original issue price of $1 per coin. This is one commemorative issue that was very widely disbursed. Today, this relatively high mintage coin is not rare, but I have never heard of any significant quantity deals of this issue. Surviving specimens grade anywhere from circulated to MS67. Luster can either be white and frosty or semi-prooflike and satiny. There are many beautifully toned specimens, so whether you're looking for a pure white coin or an attractively toned specimen, you'll be able to find what you want.
