In 1891, Congress approved the redesign of the Seated Liberty coins which had been used in circulation dating all the way back to the 1830s.Tasked with the project to develop a new design was U.S. Mint Director Edward O. Leech. Leech felt that public entry into the contest for the design of a new American coin would be unacceptable. Instead, he opted to have a design competition amongst professional artists and sculptors, the winner of which would receive a cash prize. The group of professional artists and sculptors ultimately refused to work with Leech for the contest, as only one would be rewarded for their work. Forced to resort to plan B, Leech instructed Barber to design the new coins. In spite of varied opinions from the public, the design was approved by President Benjamin Harrison in November 1891.

A Tribute to 100 Year Old Artistry

By  Forward Observer

from Bristow, VA

5.0

The Silver Rounds dedicated to the resurrection of the United States coinage minted approximately one hundred years ago are to my eye the most beautiful of all the offerings available in this category. They are a magnificent tribute to the artistry of chief engraver Charles E. Barber. The Barber Silver Rounds have lured me to exercise my purchasing ability without qualm or regret. The classic rendition captured my attention immediately. Then, after delivery and examination, the proof-like attributes and frosty devices won my every approval. These rounds are gems in their own right. It will be difficult to ever part with them.

The Silver Rounds dedicated to the resurrection of the United States coinage minted approximately one hundred years ago are to my eye the most beautiful of all the offerings available in this category. They are magnificent tributes to the artistry of chief engraver Charles E. Barber and sculptor Hermon Atkins MacNeil. The Barber Silver Rounds and the Standing Liberty Silver Rounds have lured me to exercise my purchasing ability without qualm or regret. Their classic renditions captured my attention instantly. Then, upon delivery and after examination, the proof-like attributes and frosty devices clinched my approval. These are gems in their own right. It will be difficult to ever part with them.
