Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1900 Half Dollar is a popular, turn-of-the-century date.  It is relatively common, fairly easy to find in high grade, and it usually features a strong strike and good, overall eye appeal.  This date offers excellent value for the type buyer all the way up to MS65.  The best 1900 Half Dollars top out at MS67 -- such coins are true condition-rarities and they can be worth four to five times that of an MS66.

In circulated conditions, and in mint state grades below Gem quality, the 1900 is not especially difficult to locate. However, accurately graded Gems are very rare and this issue is certainly undeserving of its traditional common date status. In fact, in Gem condition, the 1900 is actually every bit as rare as many of the more highly regarded issues in this series, including some in the 1890's.
