These impressive copper-nickel half dollars were issued in 1986, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. This coin, the first U.S. copper-nickel commemorative, is a wonderful way to honor this iconic American symbol. Now over 30 years old, the obverse depicts a ship of immigrants steaming into the New York Harbor, with the Statue of Liberty greeting them. The city skyline can be seen in the distance. The reverse shows an immigrant family with all of their belongings, standing on the threshold to the American Dream. Issued in the year of the tremendous celebration for the Statue of Liberty's centennial. Sold as part of 2-coin sets with the silver dollar, they're tough to find individually today.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
