1936 50C Arkansas MS64 Certification #84628812, PCGS #9237

Expert Comments

David Hall

The distribution of the three 1936 Arkansas issues (1936 being the actual year of the Arkansas statehood centennial) was handled by the Arkansas Centennial Committee. The mintages for the three issues was nearly identical at 9,660 for the Philadelphia, 9,660 for the Denver, and 9,662 for the San Francisco. These mintages were the highest for the Arkansas series except for the 1935 Philadelphia.

Like all Arkansas, the 1936 has a high survival rate and most of the survivors grade MS63 to MS66. This issue is almost unknown in circulated condition. The 1936 is rarer than the 1936-D and 1936-S in grades MS65, MS66, and MS67. It is really rare coin in the MS67 grade. The typical 1936 Arkansas has frosty luster or varying degrees of toning.
