1811 American Liberty Bust Half-Dollar (Plated)
A replica of an original 1811 Liberty Bust Silver Half-Dollar Piece. This was one of the most commonly used denominations of currency in America. This was adequate to buy an average meal, or maybe a little floor space for the night. During the War of 1812, volunteer soldiers who brought their own horse were paid an extra 50 cents per week to cover the cost of feeding their horses! This coin is die-struck in solid copper, then silver plated for an affordable authentic appearance. Coin is stamped with a discrete "COPY" mark as per numismatic federal law. Please note that the coin is pictured with a modern quarter for size comparison, which is not included.
