Barber Half Dollars (1892 - 1915) (Certified)
APMEX offers a superb selection of Barber half dollars.
Designed by Mint Engraver Charles Barber, the Barber half dollar was created to replace the Seated Liberty design. Originally, a public contest was held for the creation of a new design, but this failed due to financial as well as artistic reasons—none of the designs submitted by the public were judged as worthy. Barber Half Dollars bear the exact same design as the Barber Dimes and Quarters. Barber Halves are popular to collect as there are no cost-prohibitive rarities in the series.
