Historical Significance of Liberty Seated Half Dollars Add Value to Collection

The series ran from 1839 until 1891. It was one of the longest running half dollars up to that point in history. It also held an important place in history because the Civil War and post-Civil War reconstruction took place during the time the Liberty Seated coins were in circulation. During the years of minting and circulation, these half dollars saw several variations, but the iconic Libery Seated design remained the same.

In 1861, the U.S. Mint at New Orleans was commandeered by Confederate forces after Louisiana seceded from the Union. It continued to strike U.S. coinage and that money helped to fuel the Confederacy during the early days of the war. Collectors can own highly valuable Liberty Coins that have tremendous value. Half dollars make a great investment for everyone.
