It was the first and most subscribed U.S. copper-nickel half dollar commemorative proof. Shown is a full-length rendering of the Statue of Liberty greeting a ship of immigrants in New York Harbor as a spectacular dawn announces a fresh chapter in their lives. On the reverse a family of newly arrived immigrants around 1900 looks from Ellis Island to the New York skyline. Finest-quality proof minting with deep-etched frosted engravings and mirror fields.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
